Open on First Friday – Lori Murphy: Transforming the Canon

August 5 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Lori Murphy continues her series of work based on the deconstruction and reconstruction of John Canaday’s Metropolitan Seminars in Art, a classic series of instructive books about art and art making from the 1950’s. This solo exhibition includes seventeen recent pieces comprised of pages torn from the canon, reassembled and transformed with paint, graphite, wax or gesso and in some cases heavily stapled.
