Al-Hadid “Delirious Matter”

The Bronx Museum of the Arts

poster for Al-Hadid “Delirious Matter”

This event has ended.

The centerpiece of Diana Al-Hadid: Delirious Matter at the Bronx Museum will be the monumental sculpture Nolli’s Orders (2012), which references Giambattista Nolli’s landmark 1748 map of Rome, the first of its kind to show the public spaces of the city. In it, publicly accessible buildings are shown as transparent; private structures are rendered as solid. In Nolli’s Orders, Al-Hadid used the same lexicon of voids and solids, transparency and opaqueness, to convey public and private spaces, figure and ground.

Diana Al-Hadid: Delirious Matter will be shown concurrently with a special commission by the Madison Square Park Conservancy of new sculptural works by Al-Hadid, and it will feature additional works and primary source materials, including a reprinted folio of Nolli’s map and works on paper by old masters from the Metropolitan Museum collection.
