“Working in a wide array of media and exploring a diverse range of forms, Eva Rothschild has established an international reputation as one of the most significant sculptors of her generation. We’re thrilled that for her Sightings installation, the artist has engaged in the most thoughtful and ambitious manner with our admissions bay, so that visitors to the Nasher will immediately be surprised and delighted by her work from their first entrance into the museum, and as they move through its spaces,” notes Nasher Director Jeremy Strick.
Born in Dublin in 1971, and currently based in London, 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.
