Revelation: The Art of James Magee

Revelation: The Art of James Magee marks the first major museum exhibition of the artist’s work in 18 years. Organized by the Nasher Sculpture Center, the exhibition features approximately twenty relief sculptures. A major new monograph accompanying the exhibition includes The Hill, a monumental installation project in the desert east of El Paso that has been under construction for more than 30 years and is due to be completed in 2025. Working with an array of found and castoff materials, Magee (aka Horace Mayfield and Annabel Livermore) creates powerful sculptural reliefs that are often framed in steel boxes.
