Per Barclay: House of Oil and Water Installation Opening Reception

June 28, 2019, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Redwood Library and Athenæum

Please join us for a Members Reception to celebrate the opening of Per Barclay: House of Oil and Water

Norwegian artist Per Barclay will present three bodies of work at the Redwood this summer: a site-specific commission, Oil Room in the Redwood’s eighteenth-century summer house; Untitled, a 7-foot glass house where pumped water sloshes gently and rhythmically around the interior walls and ceilings in the Delivery Room and monumental photographs documenting Barclay’s earlier site-specific installations in the Peirce Prince gallery. These include a library reflected with stunning clarity in a mirror of oil Rue Visconti # 14, a Swiss bank vault seemingly floating atop it, La Banque, Geneve, 2005, and other oily interventions.

Made possible by Cornelius C. Bond and Ann E. Blackwell and the Hartfield Foundation

Registration required. Please call 401.847.0292.
