Next up for the Nasher Sculpture Center’s ongoing Sightings series of installations and architectural interventions by contemporary artists will be an installation by London-based artist Eva Rothschild. Born in Dublin in 1971, 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 Sightings, Rothschild will make an intricate network of painted piping that similarly addresses the transitional space of the Nasher’s entrance bay. Running up the walls, along the floor, and over furniture, the installation will thoroughly inhabit the space, heightening and redefining our experience of the architecture.
Rothschild has exhibited widely at museums, including Hepworth Wakefield, Tate Britain, and Kunsthaus Basel. Her work is included in the collections of the Tate Gallery, London, the Carnegie Museum, Pittsburgh, and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin.
