Event Description

Join us every second Thursday to connect with art through cocktails, conversations, and creativity. This month, embark on an immersive journey through Louise Nevelson’s artistic explorations in The World Outside: Louise Nevelson at Midcentury and learn about how the artistic icon influenced art today.


5–8 p.m.

Enjoy drinks in the Atrium. Carter members get one complimentary drink! Lite bites are available for purchase at the Carter’s Food Cart.

Look closely to find hidden objects within Nevelson’s sculptures in a scavenger hunt of the exhibition.

Check out the audio stops to hear contemporary artists, curators, and others share insight on Nevelson’s work.

Create a monochromatic artwork inspired by Nevelson. Led by Carter Community Artist Rebecca Shewmaker. Supplies limited to the first 200 people.

6–7:30 p.m.

Hear from Julia Bryan-Wilson, the author of the monograph Louise Nevelson’s Sculpture: Drag, Color, Join, Face (Yale, 2023), and learn all about artist Louise Nevelson. In 2022, Bryan-Wilson curated the exhibition Louise Nevelson: Persistence, an official collateral event of the 59th Venice Biennale, and authored an essay for the Carter’s exhibition catalogue for The World Outside. She teaches at Columbia University and is Curator-at-Large at the Museu de Arte de São Paulo. Following her presentation, Bryan-Wilson will participate in an audience Q&A. Seating for the talk is first come, first served.
