Farewell & Welcome/Project: Morisot
HADLEY + MAXWELL, LORNA BROWN
March 5, 2004
The Board of Directors of Artspeak invite you to join us in bidding farewell to Lorna Brown and to welcome our new Director/Curator. On this special occasion, a new Artspeak Edition will be launched.
Project: Morisot, 2004 is a photographic print, edition of ten, signed and numbered by the artists Hadley + Maxwell. In their Décor Series, the artists collaborate with a curator, gallery director, dealer, collector, or other subject of cultural production and dissemination. They perform a temporary redecoration, or installation, in the subject’s home, which is then documented for exhibition. Project: Morisot, a collaboration with Lorna Brown, is the most recent project in this series.
