The Nasher Sculpture Center brings art world speakers for conversations and lectures about sculptural themes on Saturday, October 20th at 1pm. Learn about the ever-expanding definition of sculpture and the thought-process behind some of today’s most innovative contemporary artwork, architecture and design.
Born in Dublin in 1971, Eva Rothschild has received acclaim for works that reshape the legacy of minimalist and post-minimalist sculpture to offer evocative, open-ended experiences to the viewer. In 2011, she created Empire for the Public Art Fund, New York, placing a monumental, multidirectional archway out of steel painted with brightly colored stripes at one of the entries to Central Park. For the Nasher’s Sightings series, Rothschild will make an intricate network of painted piping that similarly addresses the transitional space of the Nasher’s entrance bay.
Rothschild has exhibited widely at museums, including Hepworth Wakefield, Tate Britain and Kunsthalle Zurich. Her work is included in the collections of the Tate Gallery London, the Carnegie Museum, Pittsburgh, and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin.
Immediately following the presentation, guests will enjoy a wine reception. RSVP required. For information and reservations, email 360rsvp@nashersculpturecenter.
