5872129David Nash: 200 Seasons
DateSaturday 28th September 2019 to Sunday 2nd February 2020
DescriptionDavid Nash: 200 Seasons will be one of the largest and most ambitious exhibitions of David Nash's work presented in England. The exhibition, from 28 September 2019-2 February 2020, is a major survey of Nash's career from the late 1960s to the present day, exploring his unique contribution to British sculpture and the international Land Art movement. 200 Seasons also marks one of the major moments in Towner's programme of events and exhibitions celebrating 10 years in the gallery's current building. The exhibition includes new work and reflects the artist's long relationship with Wales and East Sussex, in particular Capel Rhiw, Blaenau Ffestiniog, his home and studio for over half a century. 200 Seasons, which will be installed across Towner's four major gallery spaces, will feature key sculptures, films and drawings from the late 1960s to the present day. The exhibited sculptures explore the different ways the artist has cut, carved and manipulated wood to produce work that crosses abstraction and figuration, always retaining his trademark reference to the forms of the original tree and the unique qualities of the chosen material. David Nash, who lives in Blaenau Ffestiniog and Lewes, has had many important solo exhibitions and international surveys of sculpture and his work is represented in major museum collections around the world. Recent major presentations at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2010-11) and Kew Gardens (2012) have underlined his international importance as a sculptor and land artist. Previous exhibitions have included the Serpentine Gallery (London) and the Museum of Metropolitan Art (New York). Eighteen Thousand Tides (1996), in Towner's collection and commissioned by the gallery almost 20 years ago, is also on permanent public display in Manor Gardens, Eastbourne. David Nash said, "I was born in the South East but have lived at Capel Rhiw, an old Methodist chapel in Blaenau Ffestiniog, since the 1960s. Many of my sculptures have been made in Sussex where much of the wood I use is sourced. I have watched Towner grow since the 1980s and it is a great pleasure to bring the Capel Rhiw Collection to this magnificent gallery." The exhibition has been developed in partnership with National Museum Cardiff, taking place there 3 May-1 September.
