Exhibition Guide, Chapter 15
Boston-born artist R.H. Quaytman incorporates optical abstractions, silkscreened photographs, diamond dust layers, and hand-painted trompe l’oeil elements into her works. Using these diverse techniques, she weaves personal, art historical, and formal narratives to explore the many contexts in which painting can be seen and understood. Presented in groups she considers “chapters,” Quaytman's works invite the viewer to look from one painting to another, considering individual works within the context of the group.
For Momentum 15, her first solo museum exhibition, Quaytman will create new paintings inspired by the past exhibitions and educational mission of the ICA, its history of presenting the "contemporary," and the architecture of the Momentum gallery.
Momentum 15: R.H. Quaytman, the artist’s first solo museum exhibition, is made possible through the generous support of the Harpo Foundation.
The Momentum series is sponsored by the Cartin Family, Rebecca and Martin Eisenberg, and Marlene and David Persky.
