The Nasher Sculpture Center will organize “The Nature of Arp,” an exhibit looking at the achievements of modern artist Jean (Hans) Arp.
The exhibition will be on view starting Sept. 15.
“The Nature of Arp” will present a new look at Arp, whose experimental approach to creation, radical rethinking of traditional art forms, and collaborative proclivities resonate with the wide-ranging character of art today.
Bringing together more than 80 objects, “The Nature of Arp” will include works drawn from prominent U.S. and European museums, foundations, and private collections.
“It is with keen enthusiasm that we present this in-depth reappraisal of the extraordinary work of Jean (Hans) Arp, one of the key figures of the modern era,” said director of the Nasher Sculpture Center Jeremy Strick. “Celebrating his contributions to notions of artistic flexibility, invention, and conceptual rigor is sure to prompt reflection on the legacy of his talent, as well as encourage fresh thinking about what it means to lead a creative life at this moment.”
