Ruth Nivola and family.


Livestream Talk: Alicia Longwell with Claire A. Nivola, Adrian Nivola, and Teresa Kittler

FRIDAY NIGHTS LIVE!

June 25, 6 pm - 7 pm

Join Chief Curator Alicia G. Longwell in a livestream conversation with children’s book author Claire A. Nivola; Brooklyn-based artist Adrian Nivola; and Dr. Teresa Kittler, Scholar-in-Residence at Magazzino as they explore the work of Ruth Nivola.

Ruth Guggenheim Nivola (American, born Germany, 1917–2008) grew up in Europe before settling in the U.S. in 1939 at the outbreak of World War II. She and her husband, the Sardinian-born sculptor Costantino Nivola, came to New York and eventually bought a small farmhouse in Springs, East Hampton, near friends and neighbors Saul Steinberg, Frederick Kiesler, and Harold Rosenberg.

Some of Ruth Nivola’s extraordinary artwork, whose richness of material, craft, and beauty defies such traditional categories as sculpture or ornament, talisman or adornment, is currently on view at the Parrish in the exhibition, Affinities for Abstraction: Women Artists on Eastern Long Island, 1950-2020 and will be the subject of an in-depth conversation among those who know her work best: her daughter, well−known children’s book author Claire A. Nivola; Brooklyn-based artist Adrian Nivola, who often spent time with his grandmother when she was creating her pieces; and Dr. Teresa Kittler, Scholar-in-Residence at Magazzino, an artspace devoted to Italian art in Cold Spring, New York, where she has curated the current exhibition Nivola: Sandscapes.

 

 

Friday Nights at the Parrish are made possible, in part, by Presenting Sponsor:Additional support provided by The Corcoran Group and Sandy and Stephen Perlbinder.
