Art Matters

Anh-Minh Le | October 7, 2016 | Story Galleries and Performance

This fall, a new biography by Laurie Wilson, Louise Nevelson: Light and Shadow, will delve into the life and work of the 20th century artist, best known for her massive sculptures—in particular, her monochrome, salvaged-wood assemblages. Locally, Pace Palo Alto will be celebrating Nevelson’s genius as well with an exhibition that runs from Sept. 28 through Nov. 27.

Among the more than a dozen sculptures and collages that will be on display at Pace is “Cascade VII,” created in 1979 of wood painted black. “[Nevelson] was really able to see things dierently,” says Liz Sullivan, president of Pace Palo Alto. “I love how she would take all of these pieces that were part of something else and then put them together. Her thought process was pretty amazing.” Sullivan plans to create a program around Nevelson that will include talks and a viewing of a documentary on the artist. 229 Hamilton Ave., Palo Alto, 650.561.4076
