New York, NY | Gallery Talk with Nancy Koenigsberg
February 15 | 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Join ArtTable for an inspiring artist talk exploring Nancy Koenigsberg: Line and Shadow at Chelsea’s Nancy Hoffman Gallery, established in 1972 and currently supporting artists working on four continents.
Through the works on view in Line and Shadow, Koenigsberg will discuss the evolution of her practice. Her first exhibition with Nancy Hoffman Gallery, it includes approximately 25 works made between 1998 and 2023, and focuses on wire sculpture. Woven or knotted wire grids are shaped and layered; juxtapositions between shiny and dull, fragile and industrial-strength materials challenge and engage the viewer visually and conceptually. Koenigsberg says the grids featured in much of her work reflect the city streets she knows so well as a New Yorker, as well as the nuances and intricacies of the textile world she’s been immersed in for decades.
Koenigsberg co-founded the Textile Study Group of New York in 1977, inviting well-regarded artists from around the world to examine the historical and technical importance of textile practices, from the ancient to the most contemporary. Koenigsberg now serves as President Emerita of the Textile Study Group and in 2022 became a Fellow of the American Craft Council.
This talk is made possible with the generous support of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.
