Meg Lipke: Shapeshifting
Start Date: September 20 10:00 AM
This event is open to the public
New sculptural work by Meg Lipke is on view in the Gelb Gallery, George Washington Hall, Phillips Academy, from September 20 through October 21, 2017. A closing reception for the artist is scheduled for Saturday, October 21, in the Gelb Gallery, from 2-4 pm. The public is welcome.
Shapeshifting is a trope in the oldest stories of every culture
describing metamorphosis from one state to another.
Meg Lipke’s installation creates dialogues: between framed paintings, textiles, objects, and sculptures; between ideas of authorship, as some work is Lipke’s, some is her grandmother's, and some is found; and, between time periods when pieces refer to industrialization and mill work that ended in the 20th century.
Lipke was born in 1969 in Portland, Oregon and was raised in Burlington, Vermont and Cheshire, England. She received her MFA from Cornell University and has taught at The University of Northern Iowa, Cornell University, and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and has been reviewed in Art in America, the Village Voice, the New York Times and many online publications. She lives and works in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.
