Please join us for a talk with Dutch artist Evert Nijland, Tuesday evening October 25th at 7pm.
Nijland is traveling to the US in support of his solo exhibition Between Black and White at Gallery Loupe, which is currently on view through November 5th.
For twenty years Nijland’s objects and jewels have navigated a spectacular course between the primal and sophisticated, raw and genteel, historic and modern, luxe and quotidian, tangible and intellectual. By investigating cultural markers long considered opposite, like ornate Baroque embellishments and conceptual contemporary aesthetics – along with substances as diverse as textile and iron, rope and porcelain, rubber and mole fur – he encourages us to perceive art through an alternate set of criteria. In both free-standing and wearable formats, Nijland seamlessly blends the autonomy of sculpture with the functionality of jewelry.
