Woven Worlds: Thomas Bayrle builds a Madonna

Renowned German Pop artist Thomas Bayrle discusses home, the studio, the architectural challenge and ultimate triumph of building Wire Madonna in ICA Miami’s Atrium Gallery. This site-specific commission, currently on long-term view in ICA Miami’s former home in the landmark Moore Building, is Thomas Bayrle’s most significant monumental sculpture to date, and is a radical dramatization of cultural icons that the artist has explored since the early 1960s.
