If New York is an open-air work of art, we must also thank Costantino Nivola. An Italian of Sardinian origins, he was a master sculptor of the twentieth century. His works – 21 just in the Big Apple – are scattered throughout the city: from the Bronx to Queens, from Manhattan to Brooklyn and to Staten Island.

From January 23 to March 15,  2020, some of them will be on display at Cooper Union, in the Arthur A. Houghton Jr. Gallery in “Nivola in New York – Figure in Field”, the first exhibition to tell the story of the projects created by the artist in New York. This was made possible thanks to the collaboration between the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, the Costantino Nivola Foundation and the Italian Cultural Institute.
