The Nivola Museum in Orani is an institution devoted to the work of Costantino Nivola within the larger context of contemporary art, landscape and living traditions. The museum was established in 1994, a few years after the death of Nivola (Orani, 1911- East Hampton,1988) and has been expanding ever since.
The permanent collection holds more than two hundreds sculptures, paintings and drawings by Nivola, who played a unique role in 20th century modernism as an artist who worked closely with architects.
Aside from exhibiting Nivola’s work, the museum produces temporary exhibitions on a regular basis. These center mainly on the relationship between art, architecture, and landscape, with a special focus on artists and movements that were close to Nivola, whose friends included Le Corbusier, Jackson Pollock, Saul Steinberg, Willem de Kooning, Alexander Calder and many other protagonists of mid-20th century art.
