H Tues-Fri 10.00 to 5.00, Sat-Sun 12.00 to 5.00, Mon by appt. To Nov 25 Eva Rothschild – the 2018 ACCA International exhibition presents a survey of works by Irish-born, London-based artist Eva Rothschild, ahead of her appearance at the 2019 Venice Biennale where she will represent Ireland. Shaped by a myriad of influences from minimal art of the 1960s and 70s to classical architecture, spiritualism and pop-culture, Rothschild has an international reputation for sculptural forms that are both striking and spare, as sharp geometric shapes morph into flamboyant, enigmatic compositions. Presented in association with Melbourne Festival, the exhibition brings together three new sculptural commissions created especially for ACCA’s galleries, alongside recent work spanning the last decade of Rothschild’s diverse yet distinctive practice.
