Curator-led Tour of 'Coille Hooven: Tell It By Heart' and 'Chris Antemann: Forbidden Fruit'

Thu, Oct 20, 2016

Discover the new exhibitions Coille Hooven: Tell It By Heart and Chris Antemann: Forbidden Fruit with William and Mildred Lasdon Chief Curator Shannon R. Stratton and feminist scholar Jenni Sorkin as your guides.

These exhibitions explore the re-contextualization of porcelain as a medium to convey domestic-centered narratives through a solo exhibition of 50 years of work by Coille Hooven and the recent collaboration between Chris Antemann and MEISSEN.

At the conclusion of the 6:00 pm tour, visitors will be invited to join the 6:30 pm Curator-led Tour of Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years by Windgate Research and Collections Curator Elissa Auther and artist Arlene Shechet followed by the panel discussion Voulkos, Then and Now.

The exhibitions are part of MAD Transformations, a series of six exhibitions presented this fall that address artists who have transformed and continue to transform our perceptions of traditional craft mediums. 

In accordance with the Mayor of New York City’s Emergency Executive Order, all attendees are required to provide I.D. and proof of vaccination against Covid-19. Learn more about the Museum’s health and safety protocols.
