Following her Winter 2022 collaboration with Justin Peck, Eva LeWitt expanded her work on Partita with a large-scale sculpture on the Promenade of the Theater for Art Series 2022.
The New York-based artist’s vibrant, handmade site-specific installations and wall-based sculptures address sculptural concerns such as volume and weight, and the tensions between industrial and hand-made fabrication. Using soft, pliable, semi-transparent and semi-absorptive materials such as acetate, latex, and sponge, she subtly renders variations in tone, exploring the expressive properties of light through strategies of accretion, modularity, and repetition.
Exhibitions include the Jewish Museum, New York, NY; the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Ridgefield, CT; the Clark Institute at Williams College, Williamstown, MA; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA; a solo exhibition at the Luhring Augustine gallery in NYC, and a large-scale commission at the New Britain Museum of American Art, CT. Her works are held in the permanent collections of the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C.; Kistefos Museum, Jevnaker, Norway; and X Museum, Beijing, China.
