This exhibition was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.

Inside The Modern Institute’s gallery on Aird’s Lane and expanding onto the green space outside are new works by Eva Rothschild that extend the artist’s interest in reinvigorating conventional sculpture. In 2019, Rothschild represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale. Her work displays close attentiveness to contemporary relationships between society and the individual.

Her sculptures are attuned to the physical presence of the body and alert to its role in the acts of making and experiencing artworks. By employing multiple formats and diverse materials, Rothschild encourages visitors to experience both a physical and an aesthetic response. Her aim is to create multiple spaces for contemplation, conversation and collective engagement.
