Scholar Shirley Reece-Hughes, curator of painting, sculpture, and works on paper at the Amon Carter Museum, discusses her recently opened exhibition The World Outside: Louise Nevelson at Midcentury. This exhibition illuminates Nevelson’s multidimensional mastery of form and attunement to postwar American culture. Nevelson was an avid collector of objects, and she assembled various found wooden scraps--table legs, bannisters, rolling pins, milk crates, moldings, and other architectural fragments--to create her sculptures. Nevelson aimed to create a spiritual experience out of everyday objects, transforming them from the material to the immaterial. Reece-Hughes will connect her talk to artworks in SAAM’s collection, including the monumental Sky Cathedral

This lecture replaces the one with Debra Yepa-Pappan originally scheduled for this date.
