Featuring masterworks from the Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection, Rediscoveries: Modes of Making in Modern Sculpture traces the roots of new methods of conceiving and making sculpture over the past 125 years. In the upper galleries of the museum, visitors will find beloved and familiar works from different historical eras combined in new and unexpected ways alongside sculptures never before displayed at the Nasher Sculpture Center, most notably Richard Serra’s 1969 Inverted House of Cards. Created by leaning four large Cor-Ten steel plates against one another, Serra’s iconic prop piece uses natural forces to transform a child’s game into a weighty meditation on mass, force, and endurance.
