Eva Rothschild Alternative to Power

The New Art Gallery Walsall
Gallery Square

A major solo exhibition by Irish artist Eva Rothschild (b. 1971, Dublin) at The New Art Gallery Walsall. 

The New Art Gallery Walsall is delighted to present a major exhibition of new work by Irish sculptor Eva Rothschild.

Rothschild is one of the leading sculptors of her generation and has gained extensive international recognition for her work. Her practice is informed by an ongoing interest in the meeting points between spirituality, visual perception and the nature of materiality. She works across a range of media including steel, leather, resin, plastic and fabric and her work is often characterised by the use of unstable geometric forms. This will be Rothschild’s first solo exhibition in the Midlands and the new body of work will include a specially commissioned piece using leather sourced from local suppliers.

Eva Rothschild has had solo shows at Nasher Sculpture Centre, Dallas, Tate Britain, and The Hepworth Wakefield. Her work is held in major collections including Tate, The Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Irish Museum of Modern Art. She was elected to the Royal Academy in 2015.
