Thomas Houseago: As I went Out One Morning

May 4 – November 11, 2013


Thomas Houseago: As I Went Out This Morning is the first large-scale presentation of the work of artist Thomas Houseago (b. 1972) in the United States. Born and raised in Leeds, England, Houseago also lived in the Netherlands and Belgium before moving to Los Angeles in 2003, becoming a United States citizen in 2012. Houseago has taken a particular interest in outdoor sculpture, and as such Storm King is an ideal venue for an exhibition of his work. This exhibition includes indoor and outdoor sculpture in several media, including bronze, aluminum, wood, Tuf-Cal plaster, and charcoal, as well as drawings, displayed in Storm King's Museum Building and on the grounds of Museum Hill. Houseago began to create outdoor sculpture in 2007, and this exhibition includes the earliest example of his large-scale work in bronze, Untitled Striding Figure, 1, and outdoor and indoor works completed as recently as 2013, on view in this exhibition for the first time.
