This week we visit The Nasher Sculpture Center and speak with curator Jed Morse about their latest exhibition, Jaume Plensa: Genus and Species.
Contemporary sculptor Jaume Plensa was born in Barcelona in 1955. He studied at the “Llotja” School and in the Escola Superior de Belles Arts de Sant Jordi. His public works have been installed around the world, most recently in the US at Millennium Park in Chicago.
Jaume Plensa: Genus and Species contains several new sculptures, including some never seen before, in metal and stone.
