Event Description
Please join us for a reception, Thursday, September 5, from 6 - 8 pm, to celebrate the opening of the exhibition, PAPER/PRODUCT: Portfolios from the Polly and Mark Addison Collection.

PAPER/PRODUCT: Portfolios from the Polly and Mark Addison Collection features selections from the significant modern and contemporary art collection of Polly and Mark Addison. The works chosen for this exhibition explore the relationship between the function of the portfolio and the viewer’s experience. Featured is Christian Marclay’s "Graffiti Composition," a documentation of an interactive public art event as well as a score to be interpreted by musicians, emphasizing the reciprocal relationship between sight and sound, art object and music. Josef Albers' "Interaction of Color" is a portfolio that invites viewers to participate in experiments devised to instill an understanding of and sensitivity to the intellectual and physical realms of color.

Also featured are portfolios by Gunther Gerzso and Octavio Paz, Jenny Holzer, Sol LeWitt, Joan Mitchell, Walasse Ting and Sam Francis, and Edda Renouf
