This event has ended.

Hunter Gatherer marks Julie Heffernan’s eighth solo exhibition with the gallery and her first New York presentation in five years. With this exhibition, Heffernan continues her practice of bringing the viewer directly into contact with her interior world through a series of virtuosic self-portraits. Working over three decades, Heffernan’s career can be viewed as chronicling an individual life; her early paintings describe youthfulness through ripe still lives and fecund landscapes, while her later paintings suggest maturation through depictions of accumulation and loss. Compelled by the excess of images our contemporary world has access to, Heffernan, in her new series, unravels our cultural memory as it is captured in shared imagery and reveals how images ranging from Old Master paintings to advertisements, films stills, and pornography tell a story of the misogynistic power structure which determines our society’s behavior and definition of womanhood. In Hunter Gatherer Heffernan offers a path for reexamination and an opportunity to honor women who have been misrepresented or excluded from this visual history.
