Art & Object
Weinstein Gallery is pleased to present a multimedia exhibition of objects from Africa, Asia, and the Americas, as well as work by internationally acclaimed contemporary artists. Figurative sculptures from civilizations spanning several thousand years are juxtaposed with contemporary artistic viewpoints.
Photographic images depicting haunting Madonna-like women and Paris fashion scenes are paired with a 2000 year old Han dynasty figurine of a high-society lady and an 18th century Colonial figure from Ecuador. The extravagance of Marie Antoinette's bed in Versailles parallels the adornments on a glazed 6th century Chinese horse.
