Anne Ferrer: Hot Pink

Friday, October 19, 2012 - Saturday, April 13, 2013

This exhibition features a monumental inflated sculpture suspended in the museum Atrium, by Parisian artist Anne Ferrer. The playful undulating form, stitched on site during a two month-long residency, continues Ferrer's interest in using brightly colored sailcloth to create joyous forms that suggest undersea life, French pastry, and the pleasure of floating in air. The show includes working drawings and watercolors of past site-specific installations by this important international artist, whose exhibitions in New York and the Pompidou Center in Paris have earned her recent critical notice.

Born in the south of France and based in Paris, Anne Ferrer has a MFA from Yale University, and a BFA from Oklahoma University. For over 20 years she has explored sculpture and unconventional textile arts, exhibiting in dozens of venues across France, as well as in New York, Prague, Turin, Bolivia, and Texas. Hot Pink is Ferrer's largest piece to date, and her first museum site project in the United States.
