Nivola in New York : Figure in Field

The Cooper Union’s Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture and the Costantino Nivola Foundation present Nivola in New York: Figure in Field, an exhibition of the work of Italian sculptor Costantino Nivola (1911–1988), known for his large-scale bas-reliefs, murals, and free-standing sculptural installations created in collaboration with architects. On view in the Arthur A. Houghton Jr. Gallery, the exhibition is the first-ever to tell the story of Nivola’s built New York City projects through maquettes and sculptures, original drawings, site-specific photographs, and related ephemera. The exhibition also features a timeline outlining 58 projects that Nivola made in collaboration with architects over approximately 40 years. In addition to the exhibition, The Cooper Union will present a variety of related programming including a panel on the role of public art, as well as off-site educational workshops and tours of Nivola’s work throughout the city.
