Conversations with Contemporary Artists: Nicola López
Nicola López (b.
1975, Santa Fe, New Mexico) works with printmaking, drawing, and
to describe and reconfigure our contemporary and increasingly urban
landscape. Her sculptural prints
and intricate constructions investigate the nature of place and
complex relation to it. In Landscape X, created as part of the
Guggenheim’s ongoing Intervals
series, López assembles a site-specific sculptural collage environment
in three levels of the rotunda.
Utilizing elements from the construction site as a point of inception,
López employs symbols of urban infrastructure to craft a graphic expanse
forms which boldly expand into the Frank Lloyd Wright space.
The Elaine Terner Cooper Education Fund: Conversations with Contemporary Artists is a series of talks by established and emerging artists working around the world.
Reception immediately follows.
