Mark di Suvero: Steel Like Paper

January 28, 2023 - August 27, 2023

Mark di Suvero (American, born China, 1933) has long been lauded as one of the most significant sculptors of the past 60 years, renowned for monumental, abstract, steel constructions that grace urban plazas, bucolic sculpture parks, and public spaces throughout the world.  Industrial studios in Long Island City, New York and Petaluma, California support the creation of these large-scale works, as well as nurture his practice on a more intimate scale.  The exhibition at the Nasher focuses on the artist’s studio practice over the course of his more than six-decade career, surveying the more intimately and modestly scaled sculptures in parallel with his energetic and rarely seen drawings. Featuring 30 sculptures ranging in size from hand-held to monumental and more than 40 drawings and paintings spanning the artist’s career, Mark di Suvero: Steel Like Paper reveals the artist’s intimate studio practice that yields the power of his monumental vision.

Matthew Monahan: Recent Acquisitions

May 6, 2023 - July 16, 2023

Los Angeles-based artist Matthew Monahan (American, born 1972) works in a variety of media, including drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture, often assembling all these media and modes into singular three-dimensional works of art. A graduate of Cooper Union School of Art in New York City and the intensive independent artist training program, De Ateliers, in Amsterdam, Monahan has been an integral part of a prominent new generation of artists living and working in Los Angeles that includes Aaron Curry, Thomas Houseago, Elliott Hundley, and Lara Schnitger among its cohort. His work is widely recognized for having reimagined and revivified the genre of figurative sculpture, often suggesting ancient sources from the art historical and literary past yet contending with Modernism and speaking to the present human condition. This exhibition celebrates the recent gifts to the Nasher of five important works by Monahan.
