PHILADELPHIA, PA—The Painted Bride Art Center’s Gallery is the setting for an exhibition of more than 100 works that explore historical and contemporary visual artists’ relationship to the Clothesline. On view March 7 – April 12, 2014, CLOTHESLINE MUSINGS | ART INSPIRED BY THE CLOTHESLINE includes artists Allan Freelon (1895-1960), Earl Horter (1881-1940), Beverly McIver, Howardena Pindell, and Maya Freelon Asante, as well as artwork selected from a national call for artists.
This multimedia, interactive exhibition is inspired by the grind and grace of domestic life. A diverse range of visual media is presented: fine art, photography, prints, sculptures, installations and digital art created by artists’ interpretations– literal, figurative, and abstract– of the clothesline, hand washing and line drying, clothesline games and memories, and the environmental impact of taking in the wash.
CLOTHESLINE MUSINGS | ART INSPIRED BY THE CLOTHESLINE will run in tandem with the world premiere of The Clothesline Muse and will also take a closer look at the set and stories behind the production– showcasing archival images, artifacts from hand washing, visual projections and music from the production.
Exhibition Receptions: Fri March 7th & April 4th, 2014 | 5pm – 7pm
The Painted Bride Art Center – 230 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19106 – 215.925.9914 – firstname.lastname@example.org
