Ways of Attaching

"Ways of Attaching" is the first survey exhibition of the work of U.S. artist Rosemary Mayer (1943-2014), who was active in the New York art scene beginning in the 1960s.

After beginnings in conceptual painting and drawing, Mayer embarked on a series of textile sculptures in the early 1970s, inspired in part by her fascination with Italian Mannerist painting. In 1982, she published her translation of the diary of Mannerist artist Jacopo da Pontormo, along with a catalog of her works.

The textile sculptures, as well as later sculptures in wood, attest to Mayer's interest in creating works undermined by their very construction (through inherent instability, extreme tension of synthetic fabrics, and the like).
