Jeanne Silverthorne new work in group exhibition “Position Matters”


Jeanne Silverthorne’s new work “Melancholia is not Pessimism” is included in the group exhibition “Position Matters”, curated by Saul Ostrow on view at Galerie Richard, July 13 – August 25, 2018.

Bringing together artists working with a diverse array of material and conceptual concerns, Position Matters presents works where siting and location play a critical role in the viewer’s experience and comprehension of the work. Curator Saul Ostrow states, “The artists in Position Matters abandon the frame, traditional formats, the pedestal, and placing things at eye level. They align their works with the body and address the viewer somatically and cognitively. By doing so the work becomes more a presence, an intervention, an event.”
