Press Release

Symphony of Ambient Forms celebrates Nevelson’s dexterity across her chosen mediums of

assemblage and collage, highlighting her pioneering use of materials and the breadth of complex

forms she so deftly wove into her sculptures. Large-scale stacked box constructions, wall reliefs and

plywood-backed collages (dating from 1958 through the early 1980s) embody the major threads of

Nevelson’s artistic output and continue an ongoing dialogue of intimacy and monumentality in

her work—reflected by the whimsical use of raw and ‘ready-made’ materials in her collages and the

remarkable transformations of ambient forms in her wood sculptures.
