Louise Nevelson

Pace Gallery | 534 W. 25th Street

February 2015

Louise Nevelson, we are told, was never one to shy from theatricality. In photographs she appears, long-limbed and frontal, all angles and kohl and cultivated style. Pace’s latest foray into Nevelson’s oeuvre reveals an artist of softer,… READ ON
