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.
