This event has ended.

Marianne Boesky Gallery announces Rachel Feinstein’s exhibition “The Snow Queen” commissioned by the Lever House Art Collection, New York.
Visible from the exterior of the glass façade of the Lever House building, Feinstein has transformed a corner of the lobby into an enclosed, intricately wood-worked white-paneled room similar to the period rooms at the Metropolitan Museum of Art where one is able to look but not enter. It references the gingerbread scroll work of the Carpenter Gothic style. Set into the walls of this room are three arched niches, each featuring a sculpture inspired by characters in “The Snow Queen.” Elements of the sculptures also evoke Feinstein’s love of Bernini, Clodion, and 18th century porcelain. Inside the lobby, Feinstein has constructed a second room accessible for the viewer to enter that is comprised of floor to ceiling hand-painted mirrors depicting architectural ruins in a bucolic, sweeping landscape done in a grisaille palette.
