This first large-scale museum survey in the United States of Shirreff’s work is organized by the Albright-Knox and ICA/Boston (where it was on view from August 26 through November 29, 2015) and is accompanied by a catalogue. At the Albright-Knox, Shirreff will supplement the exhibition of her work with a group of historical photographs from the museum’s archives dating from the early 1900s to the late 1960s. These catalogue a wide range of possible interactions between museum visitors, employees, photographers, and sculptural objects in the museum setting.
This exhibition is organized by Senior Curator Dr. Cathleen Chaffee and Jenelle Porter, former Mannion Family Senior Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston.
Admission to this exhibition is free during M&T FIRST FRIDAYS @ THE GALLERY on February 5, March 4, April 1, and May 6, 2016.
