Gallery Talk with Anne Morgan Spalter

Gallery Talk with Anne Morgan Spalter

Free and open to the public, with refreshments to follow

Continuing her exploration of the modern landscape and its relationship to landscape works of the past, Spalter combines aerial urbanscapes with video works based on Renaissance painting and cathedral imagery.

In two of large-scale works installed at IAP, Spalter channels both the spirit and literal images from Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthy Delights. These video prints depict spherical worlds combining inner and outer realities. Mirroring the back panels of the famous Bosch triptych, the outer, printed forms set the scene for the highly charged interior.

A series of smaller video prints, based on footage shot in Prague, draw on spires, cobblestones streets, stained glass, and an impressively vaulted cathedral interior to create a spiritual space that celebrates the merging of art and science.

On the occasion of her exhibition opening reception at Independent Art Projects, Anne Morgan Spalter will lead an exhibition walkthrough, discuss what influences her work, help us discover the behind-the-scene of her installations, and where she’s headed next.

Spalter’s works are on view at IAP through Sunday, January 4, 2015.
