Traveling from the Nasher Sculpture Center, first venue of the show, “The Nature of Arp” presents a new look over the six-decade career of artist Jean Arp (1886–1966). A founder of Dada, he produced an influential body of works, covering a wide variety of materials and formats. His art is based on an original vocabulary of forms, ranging fluidly between abstraction and representation and radically rethinking traditional art and the approach to the creative process.
