Monday, June 3, 2019, 5:30–6:30pm
Gagosian Shop, New York
Rachel Feinstein will be signing copies of her new book, Secrets, at the Gagosian Shop in New York. 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 Z-fold cover, which features a cutout doorway that embodies the dichotomies present in the artist’s work. To attend the free event, RSVP to email@example.com.

Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, England
The Artist in Residence project is a program at Chatsworth House, in collaboration with Gucci, where the public is invited to discover an artist’s works while visiting the estate. Rachel Feinstein’s works create an open dialogue between the artist’s perspective and her environment, reflective of her research during her residency at Chatsworth.
