The House was Quiet and the World was Calm
November 7 - December 21Free
On November 7, Marianne Boesky Gallery will open The House was Quiet and the World was Calm: Jennifer Bartlett 1970 – 2014, marking the gallery’s first solo presentation of the acclaimed artist’s work since it began representing her in fall 2018. The image of the archetypal house has permeated Bartlett’s work across media since the 1970s, encapsulating within its recognizable form both simple geometry and poignant symbolism. Through a selection of paintings and mixed-media installations, the upcoming exhibition captures Bartlett’s multifaceted and conceptually rigorous examinations of the idea of the house. The House was Quiet and the World was Calm will be on view at the gallery’s 509 W. 24th Street location through December 21, 2019. Join us on November 7 from 6-8 PM for the opening reception.
