The Nasher Sculpture Center will present "Moonlight," an exhibition by Austin-native, Los Angeles-based artists Nikolai and Simon Haas, curated by Brooke Hodge. Their other-worldly sculptures will be installed in the museum and garden and outside on Flora Street, greeting museum visitors and passersby alike from, conjuring the magic of moonlight through the summer months.

The Haas Brothers, fraternal twins who launched a collaborative practice in 2010, create playful environments populated with fantastical flora and fauna. Imbued with curiosity, humor, and passion for nature, their furniture, objects, and, most recently, large-scale sculptural installations awaken imaginations and transport people to another fertile, fanciful, and futuristic world.

"Moonlight" is presented across three spaces inside and outside the Nasher Sculpture Center, with whimsical and powerful installations that highlight the artists’ distinctive fusion of art, design, and technology. In front of the museum, two Moon Towers, inspired by the iconic streetlamps the brothers remember from their childhood in Austin, greet visitors from the sidewalk. The tall, glowing sculptures function as streetlamps, recalling both the Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí’s organic architecture and the French designer Hector Guimard’s sinuous art nouveau forms.
