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.
