About Pairings: Sculpture in the Nasher & Rachofsky Collections

In 2003, in celebration of the Nasher Sculpture Center’s opening, Cindy and Howard Rachofsky, Dallas-based patrons and collectors of art made after 1945, mounted an installation of sculpture at The Rachofsky House, a space that for many years served as both a private residence and a semi-public place to view works from their collection. The Rachofsky’s installation, titled Thinking About Sculpture, complemented the Nasher opening by exploring how definitions and methods of sculpture-making evolved in the postwar years. Between the two spaces, the collections presented over 125 years of sculpture in all its various forms, from works by such modern artists as Paul Gauguin, Auguste Rodin, or Medardo Rosso at the Nasher to those by contemporary living artists, including Janine Antoni, Maurizio Cattelan, and Marc Quinn at The Rachofsky House.

Reprising and expanding on that pivotal year for sculpture in Dallas, Pairings: Sculpture in the Nasher & Rachofsky Collections features these two Dallas collections in dialogue throughout the Nasher galleries. Presented side-by-side, works in each collection illustrate how artists continually seek out new ways to interpret, investigate, and redefine traditional notions of sculpture. The exhibitions are curated by Nasher Assistant Curator, Dr. Leigh Arnold, and Director of Educational Programming at The Warehouse, Thomas Feulmer.

Pairings: Sculpture in the Nasher & Rachofsky Collections is co-organized by the Nasher Sculpture Center in partnership with The Warehouse Dallas. Major support for the exhibition is provided by Cindy and Howard Rachofsky.
