VA ROTHSCHILD IN CONVERSATION
PRESENTED IN ASSOCIATION WITH ACCA AND MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL
Internationally acclaimed Irish-born, London-based artist Eva Rothschild speaks in conversation with Max Delany, Artistic Director and CEO of the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) about her new and recent sculptural works.
Rothschild will explore her interest in the social aspect of sculpture and play, along with the influence in minimalism, classical architecture and popular culture, which are just some of the contexts which inform her work, including the major installation, An Array 2016, recently acquired by the NGV.
Rothschild is in Melbourne for the opening of the first survey exhibition of the artist’s work in Australia, Eva Rothschild, on display at ACCA from 28 September – 25 November 2018, presented by ACCA in association with the Melbourne International Arts Festival.
Eva Rothschild was born in Dublin in 1972 and currently lives and works in London. Rothschild was awarded the 2012 Children’s Commission at London’s Whitechapel Gallery and the 2009 Duveen Commission at Tate Britain. In 2011 she was commissioned to produce a new public work, Empire, for New York’s Public Art Fund, with recent public exhibitions including Alternative to Power, The New Art Gallery Walsall, 2016; A Gated Community, Sonneveld House, Rotterdam, 2016; and Sightings, Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas, 2012.
