Banvard Gallery’s Travulgar Square Exhibit Moves to Cornell

 

The exhibit Travulgar Square: Ben Nicholson Drawings 1976-77, which was first shown at the KSA’s Banvard Gallery last fall, will be on display through November 2 at the Milstein Hall Gallery in the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning (AAP) at Cornell University. The drawings that comprise Travulgar Square were developed by British-born Ben Nicholson over a period of 18 months in 1976-77. The work utilized drawing techniques such as the wireframe and the serial section to selectively expose internal spatial implications and communicate complexity of organization and structure. The intricate development of three-dimensional space is exaggerated by extracted details that disclose the descriptive narrative with excruciating attention to detail.
