Art Inspired by Louis Kahn: Last year, Louis Kahn’s “era defining” architecture earned a show at the Design Museum of London. For 2019, it’s Roosevelt Island’s Gallery RIVAA, and Kahn’s influence on contemporary art.

Contemporary art inspired by Louis Kahn is the focus of Inversions, a fresh look at his wider influence.
Kahn designed FDR Four Freedoms Park, a peaceful, slopping city retreat. His mark on Roosevelt Island is a blissful tribute to our greatest president. But this show takes an original look that won’t be forgotten.
In 1974, Kahn died of a heart attack in a restroom at Penn Station in Manhattan. In his pocket, they found his design for Four Freedoms Park, and it anchored him on Roosevelt Island.
