Join DOCOMOMO US/New York Tri-State for a guided in-person tour of Nivola: Sandscapes, an exhibition dedicated to the work of artist Costantino Nivola at the Magazzino Italian Art Foundation in Cold Spring, NY. A native of Sardinia and longtime resident of Springs, NY on Long Island, Nivola (1911–1988) created large-scale architectural reliefs and sculpture installations in collaboration with prominent Modern architects.
Nivola: Sandscapes explores the artist’s pioneering process of sandcast sculpting. It features a selection of approximately 50 works from the early 1950s through the 1970s, including sandcast reliefs, carved concrete sculptures and rarely seen maquettes of his most important architectural commissions such as the iconic Olivetti Showroom on 5th Avenue, the Bridgeport Post, and the William E. Grady Vocational High School in Brooklyn. Our tour will be guided by a Magazzino staff member. Read more about the exhibition.
