Spaghetti Sculpture's Post-L.A. Gig Is a Castle on the Hudson

Jesús Raphael Soto's Penetrable, a.k.a. the "Spaghetti Sculpture," was long LACMA's most kid-friendly work. It was a temporary loan from Patricia Phelps de Cisneros' collection of Latin American abstraction. The Soto has recently gone off view and will next be lent to Olana, the house-museum of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church. The Penetrable will be shown outside in the midst of Olana's spectacular Hudson River views.

It will be part of “OVERLOOK: Teresita Fernández Confronts Frederic Church at Olana, running May 14 through Nov. 5, 2017. Fernández will install Hudson River School works against Latin modernism from the Cisneros collection. Church often looked to the grandeur of South American landscape. His South American works include Heart of the Andes at the Met and Chimborazo at the Huntington
