Born in Dublin in 1971, Eva Rothschild gained prominence by producing works that reshape the legacy of minimalist and post-minimalist sculpture to offer evocative, open-ended experiences to the viewer. In 2011, she worked with the Public Art Fund in New York to create Empire, a striped, multidirectional archway at one of the entries to Central Park. For the Nasher Sculpture Center’s Sightings series, Rothschild designed 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.
She is the featured artist for the Nasher's 360: Artists, Critics, Curators series, which begins at 1PM.
