Winner of the 2016 West Dean College Tapestry Commission Open Call, Eva Rothschild is one of the leading sculptors of her generation. Her practice is informed by an ongoing interest in visual perception and the nature of materiality, demonstrating a longstanding engagement with the woven surface. For this talk Eva will discuss her wider practice as well as her ambitions for the commission, which sees her collaborating with the Master Weavers at West Dean Tapestry Studio to produce a unique hand-woven tapestry, due to be completed next year.
