This event has ended.

Double Portrait: Mimi Gross and Marcia Marcus highlights the intersection between art and identity in the work of both women, presenting an overview of these two innovative figurative artists. The exhibition includes 28 works by the two artists made between 1958 and 2012.

Both Mimi Gross (b. 1940) and Marcia Marcus (b. 1928) lived and worked in Lower Manhattan from the 1950s on, and were central to the New York art scene in the 1960s and 70s. Recent investigations, including this one, have begun to re-examine the distinctive visions and lives of these two pioneering artists.

Also opening on Thursday in our Park Place Window Project is Jack Early’s Jack and Friends. Jack and Friends is a pop-inflected self-portrait of the artist as a nine-year-old, watching a plush television, as he sits beside his pets. Pervasive in Early’s works are a broad range of references and influences that include 1970s culture and advertising, Laugh-In, The Beatles, and Andy Warhol.
