Anna Torma and Vanessa Brown

Opening Receptions

Anna Torma: Book of Abandoned Details. Emerging from a deep Hungarian textile tradition, and as a descendant from generations of needleworkers and embroiderers, Torma’s practice is both a nod to traditional working methods as well as a contemporary contribution to the subversive, feminist avant-garde movements of the 1960s and 70s, which worked to reclaim craft traditions. Featuring new and major works produced over the past five years.

Vanessa Brown: The Witching Hour. Brown works in the space between strength and fragility through an alchemical fusing of steel, pigment, and glass – sculpture flirting with painting, a symbolic narrative collage, form as gesture or character. Bringing together new installations and recent works, ranging in scale from grand to intimate.
