Artist of the Month

AUGUST 2019: Eva Rothschild

This month we look at the work of Irish-born Collection artist Eva Rothschild, whose exhibition, The Shrinking Universe, is currently on show at the Irish Pavilion at the 58thVenice Biennale.

The Shrinking Universe was one of a number of exhibitions by Arts Council Collection artists visited as part of our recent Curators' Day event in Venice, as part of which we invited delegates to share their thoughts on the exhbitions visited. In the first film, Helen Pheby, Head of Curatorial Programme at Yorkshire Sculpture Park discusses The Shrinking Universe explaining: 'What really excites me about Eva’s work and what you really get from her pavilion here is the tension – this isn’t art that is passive which you stand back and look at, this is art that immediately confronts you and engages you.'
