The Strange Life of Objects-Annette Lemieux
This photo is of the cover of the exhibition 'catalog' for Annette Lemieux's current show at the Worcester Museum of Art. It is actually a critical overview of her career in a hardcover book.
This past Thursday, I had the great opportunity to view her show and hear her 'conversation' with critic Robert Pincus-Witten, who has contributed to the book.
This was such an amazing evening. It was as if I were sitting in on an intimate conversation amongst friends. Talk about being transported to a state between reality and fantasy! This was it. At one point, Mr. Pincus-Witten, in less than one minute ran through a chronological list of the entire contemporary art movement. I have never had such a clear understanding of these connections before this talk.
If you get a chance to see this show, you should go. I am hoping the museum recorded the talk so I can score a copy of it.
As an added bonus, Annette agreed to be my mentor for this upcoming residency. This will be my second time working with her and I am so excited! ...AND I got my book signed by both Annette and Mr. Pincus-Witten ....
