Opening Reception: Thu, Sep. 19, 2019 at 6:00 PM
Address: St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11201
St. Francis College will debut curated works from the Lise Curry Art Collection in Mirror Mirror on the Wall..., an exhibition of contemporary portraiture, figure drawing and sculpture by established and emerging artists that opens on September 19th.
Acquired over thirty years, New York City private collector Curry intends to bequeath more than 220 works to the College that reflect, in many cases, deeply personal, global perspectives on humanity and culture.
Mirror Mirror on the Wall is the first public display of Curry's collection. Among the 31 artists represented in the 33-piece exhibition are: Beatrice Coron, whose papercuttings are included in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Lola Flash, whose photography explores gender, sexual and racial norms and has been included in public collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum (London); and Rebecca Morgan, whose paintings, drawing and ceramics wittily challenge stereotypes about Appalachia and has been widely displayed in NYC and around the country.
