It's impossible to do this show justice. Not only the work itself, which is exceptional, but also the installation, which is almost as impressive. When you're making sculptures that are only a few inches in size, and when those sculptures are displayed inside recessed, glass-fronted cubes, it's incredibly difficult to take a photo that adequately reflects the attention to detail of either. Which is another reason to recommend going to see this show if you happen to be in New York before it closes on the 24th. Offering a selection of recent drawings alongside 35 sculptures made between 1991 and 2015 – the largest exhibition of Nagle's work ever organized in New York – I cannot recommend Five O'Clock Shadow highly enough.
