✭ With "Reflections: Louise Nevelson, 1967", Brandeis University's Rose Art Museum, Waltham, Massachusetts, looks to the past to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Nevelson's first museum retrospective. Largely curated and staged by the artist, the retrospective exhibition opened at Rose Art Museum in 1967, and was organized with the Whitney Museum of American Art. Included for the first time in the 2017 exhibition are such archival materials as installation photographs, correspondence, and artist-drawn floor plans. Museum visitors have the opportunity to use virtual-reality technology to see a computer-generated model of the exhibition as imagined by Nevelson. The exhibition continues through June 11.
