In 2015, the Nasher Sculpture Center was invited to select works to be donated from the Manuel Neri Trust. The resultant gift (six sculptures and ten drawings) comprises one of the most important public repositories of the artist’s work, highlighting significant developments in Neri’s career and providing insight into his working process. Manuel Neri: Recent Acquisitions from the Artist’s Trust celebrates this extraordinary gift and highlights the work of this important American sculptor and draftsman.

5.20.17 - 8.20.17

Over nearly four decades, American artist Roni Horn (born 1955) has created a rich body of work that encompasses sculpture, drawing, collage, photography, and artist’s books. For her Nasher show, the artist will install eight large-scale cylindrical cast glass sculptures of varying colors in the museum’s main gallery. It will be Horn's first U.S. museum presentation to focus specifically on her cast glass sculpture. 

5.20.17 - 8.20.17

Coinciding with the exhibition Roni Horn, the Nasher Sculpture Center’s curators have chosen works from the Nasher Collection to complement Horn’s installation and draw connections between Horn and artists of the distant and more recent past. Horn is an avid reader and frequently includes excerpts of literary texts in the subtitles of her works, as with her cast glass sculptures on view in the adjacent gallery. Literary themes appear prominently in other bodies of work too, notably in Horn’s drawings, in which the artist combines excerpts from literature with idiomatic phrases, and also in a series of aluminum sculptures in which the artist embeds the words of poet Emily Dickinson.
