Open Call: Maryam Hoseini and Phoebe d’Heurle
JUN 19 – AUG 25, 2019
A curatorial project conceptually framing the work of Suzanne Valadon, one of the most famous female painters of 19th-century France
About this commission
In She Models For Her, Hoseini and d’Heurle imagine a way of engaging with other artists across time by bringing together artworks by artists from today and past decades. She Models For Her contextualizes the work of Suzanne Valadon—a 19th-century French painter who began as a model and became one of the most famous female painters of her time—with work by Hoseini and d’Heurle and other historical and contemporary paintings, photographs, and sculptures from artists Emma Amos, Anne Cousineau, Zackary Drucker + A.L. Steiner, Hadi Fallahpisheh, Rosa Loy, Lucas Samaras, Diane Simpson, and Dorothea Tanning. In juxtaposing these works, She Models For Her explores the complex entanglements between representational art and daily life.
Maryam Hoseini and Phoebe d’Heurle are artists living and working in Brooklyn. Their collaborative work troubles the boundaries between fixed genres and set authorship.
