The Nasher’s newest exhibition, Rediscoveries: Modes of Making in Modern Sculpture, explores masterworks from the Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection. Running through January 13, familiar works from a variety of historical eras are presented in four groups, each of which examines creative strategies essential to modern sculpture. Sculptures by Carl Andre, Richard Serra and others highlight artists’ interest in working with modules, series and process. Reproduction of natural forms like plants and the human body are visible in sculptures by Jean Arp, Alexander Calder and Henri Matisse. Sculptors inspired by everyday objects and machinery are also highlighted. This exhibit provides an innovative and educational perspective on the Nasher’s impressive collection. The Nasher Sculpture Center is located at 2001 Flora St. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for students and $7 for seniors. For more info, visit nashersculpturecenter.org.
