Eva Rothschild: Kosmos - City Gallery Wellington

Eva Rothschild: Kosmos - City Gallery Wellington

April 17, 2019

Irish-born sculptor Eva Rothschild puts her own spin on the modernist-sculpture tradition. Her works nod to Brancusi, to Hepworth and Moore, to Caro, to minimalism. They also refer to vernacular forms: barriers and enclosures, curtains and seats, displays and play spaces. They are made from diverse and novel materials: concrete, leather, jesmonite, plastic. A floor-to-ceiling column—Technical Support—is actually a stack of coloured-resin casts of rolls of tape.

Exhibition Dates: Until 28th July 2019

Exhibition Hours: Open daily 10am–5pm, 

Venue: City Gallery Wellington, Te Ngakau Civic Square, Wellington, New Zealand
