The Face in the Moon: Drawings and Prints by Louise Nevelson opens at the Whitney Museum on July 20. This exhibition, drawn entirely from the Whitney's collection, shows Nevelson's work in drawing, printing, and collage, from her early focus on the human body through her progression into abstraction. Typical of her artistic practice, Nevelson incorporated unconventional or recycled materials into prints as well as she "sought to transform the materials that she used and the subjects that she dep

Louise Nevelson will be on view September 9, 2017 through Jan

After over three years of restoration work, Louise Nevelson’s Night Presence IV has been reinstalled at its home on Park Avenue near 92nd Street. The steel sculpture, measuring at 22-feet tall, is known as “one of the crown jewels” in New York City’s public art collection, and was originally donated by the artist in honor of her 50th anniversary of living and working in the city. The conservation work was realized with support from Pace’s Milly Glimcher, who maintained a close relationship

Hidden below the towering skyscrapers of Manhattan's Financial District lies a distinctive exhibition of American public art—one that nearly ceased to exist. Late last month, the city's Department of Design and Construction reinstalled an ensemble of abstract modern sculpture titled "Shadows and Flags" in the very spot where its creator, the late Louise Nevelson, had placed it when the park opened 32 years ago. It was the final phase of a $2 million project to restore Louise Nevelson Plaza, a tr
As the saying goes, the fox knows many little things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. As designers go, L.A.-based Kimberly Ovitz is very much a hedgehog. Over the course of only a few seasons, Ovitz has distilled the look of her line to a few key elements: a palette of neutrals, silhouettes clean and geometric, equestrian-inspired details, and an emphasis on draped jerseys and knits that gives her collections a quality of surprising coziness. That's not a bad formula for a designer, especi
