Prof. Julia Bryan-Wilson is curating an official collateral exhibition of the Venice Biennale, entitled Louise Nevelson: Persistence. Opening April 23, 2022 at the historic Procuratie Vecchi in Plaza San Marco, the show marks the 60th anniversary of Nevelson’s appearance at the 1962 Biennale and considers her use of assemblage as a feminist and immigrant strategy; it thus provides a glimpse of some of the themes Bryan-Wilson grapples with in her forthcoming book on Nevelson (due out in 2023 from Yale University Press).
