THIS WEEK IN DETAIL
Chris Rucker @ Industry Gallery The first solo U.S. exhibition for New York-based designer Chris Rucker whose design ethos is rooted in the use and reuse of simple and humble material. His principal medium is oriented strand board (OSB) and his design aesthetic weds the asceticism of Donald Judd with the rule-based principles of Sol LeWitt, to yield what Rucker calls "a rectilinear vocabulary."
