For the 2019 edition of Fiac, 303 Gallery is proud to exhibit a solo presentation of new sculpture by Irish artist Eva Rothschild.
Combining shapes extracted from her everyday surroundings with the enduring geometries of minimalist formal tradition, Eva Rothschild creates her own sculptural lexicon. Occupying the intersection between ceremonial objects, everyday refuse and classical imagery, her works simultaneously allude to multiple meanings and associations. One of the foremost sculptors of her generation, her sensitivity to scale, color, line, and materiality reflects a refined aesthetic sensibility that redeploys and subverts familiar sculptural formats.
Rothschild was selected to represent Ireland at this year’s 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia with her exhibition The Shrinking Universe, currently on view through November 24, 2019. Recent solo exhibitions include ‘Kosmos,’ City Gallery Wellington, Wellington, and Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA), Melbourne; 'Alternative to Power,' The New Art Gallery, Walsall; 'A Gated Community,' Sonnaveld House, Rotterdam; Hugh Lane Museum, Dublin; 'Sightings', Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas; and 'Hot Touch,' Hepworth Wakefield and Kunstverein Hannover. In June 2017, Rothschild’s work, Empire, (2011) was unveiled at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden as part of the redeveloped Walker Art Center campus, marking her first permanent outdoor work in the United States. Her work is included in the collections of Tate Gallery, London; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Carnegie Museum, Pittsburgh; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. The artist was born in Dublin in 1971; she currently lives and works in London.
