5.12.18 - 8.19.18

Over the last 150 years, artists have continuously re-evaluated conventions and accepted practices in an extended period of cultural innovation, with each generation pushing against the achievements of the preceding generation or striking out in new directions altogether. Many of these advances in art have mirrored the simultaneous rapid pace of change in science, technology, and society—as new ideas flourished in the world, artists responded with exciting new artistic forms. The constant push to forge new paths to express the human experience in the modern age can be seen most clearly, perhaps, in the medium of sculpture.

Nasher Sculpture Center and Lismore Castle Arts, Ireland—two institutions with unique outdoor settings for art, one a contemporary garden in a dynamic urban setting and the other a lush garden at an ancient castle in a bucolic rural setting—have jointly commissioned Luke Fowler to create a new sound sculpture for both locations.

Collection objects in the Nasher Garden are still on view while we install A Tradition of Revolution exhibition.
