Tarrytown, NY | Private Tour of “Inspired Encounters: Women Artists and the Legacies of Modern Art” at the David Rockefeller Creative Arts Center, with Curator Katrina London
November 19, 2022 | 11:00 am
Please join us for a tour of Inspired Encounters: Women Artists and the Legacies of Modern Art with the exhibition’s co-curator Katrina London. This is the inaugural exhibition at the David Rockefeller Creative Arts Center at Pocantico, and explores ideas of intergenerational influence and innovation among visual artists working in a range of practices.
Comprised of 43 artworks, the exhibition pairs pieces by a dozen groundbreaking women artists of the postwar period with new commissions of contemporary art presented publicly for the first time. It draws primarily from the permanent collection of modern art at Kykuit, the former Rockefeller family home that now operates as a historic house museum on The Pocantico Center campus.
Artists Sonya Clark, Maren Hassinger, Elana Herzog, Melissa Meyer, Fanny Sanín, Barbara Takenaga, and Kay WalkingStick were asked to respond to the museum and grounds at Pocantico with artwork for the exhibition. The result is a series of inspired encounters that frames the modern art of the postwar period as relevant, generative, and open to myriad creative possibilities.
