Artist Talk and Book Signing
Thursday, February 13, 2020, 6:30–8pm
Jewish Museum, New York
Rachel Feinstein will speak on the occasion of her survey exhibition, Maiden, Mother, Crone, on view at the Jewish Museum through March 22. The artist will discuss the inspirations for her art, which weaves together and deconstructs binaries, underscoring that there is no reality without fantasy, lightness without darkness, or perfection without chaos. The talk will be followed by a book signing of the companion monograph published by Rizzoli Electa. To attend the event, purchase tickets at thejewishmuseum.org.

Rachel Feinstein: Secrets is available for online reading from July 19 through August 17 as part of the From the Library series. Secrets documents Feinstein’s 2018 exhibition at Gagosian, Beverly Hills, which included a series of oversize, flamboyantly colored sculptures of women inspired by the Victoria’s Secret “Angels,” as well as mirror paintings, majolica sculptures, and a panoramic wallpaper that allude to both the European decorative arts and West Coast modernist luxury. A sculptural object in its own right, the book unites these distinct bodies of work—along with an essay by curator Pamela Golbin and a conversation between Feinstein and designer Tom Ford—within a single volume bound in a Z-fold cover, embodying the dichotomies present in the artist’s work.
