Jeanne Silverthorne explores invisibility in Addison Gallery of American Art


This Fall at the Addison Gallery of American Art, located on the campus of Phillips Academy in Andover, MA, artists Elaine Reichek and Jeanne Silverthorne will team up to present Invisible Citings, an installation exploring their shared interest in text and notions of invisibility. As the so-called Gutenberg age gives way to glowing screens, Invisible Citings celebrates writing as material and medium and looks to the printed page to consider invisibility. Weaving Reichek’s embroidery and Silverthorne’s sculpture together with classic and contemporary literature, the exhibition, on view September 1–December 31, 2017, addresses themes such as the legible and the obscured, word and image, illumination and luminescence, archiving and discarding. In conjunction with the exhibition, Reichek and Silverthorne will be the Addison’s Edward E. Elson Artists-in-Residence.

Jeanne Silverthorne, Installation of 10 Rubber Cardboard Boxes, 2015–17, platinum silicone rubber with silver metallic or phosphorescent or fluorescent pigment, archival invisible ink on acid-free paper, each: 9 x 13 x 17 in., courtesy of the artist and Marc Straus Gallery, New York.
