Place To Place To Place

September 11 ‒ October 16, 2013

Planthouse is pleased to present PLACE TO PLACE TO PLACE featuring artists Anne Eastman, Charles Goldman, Marie Lorenz and Max Warsh.

This exhibition looks at how the accumulation of activities—printing, walking, collecting, mapping, measuring—over time can formulate a strong sense of place, more nuanced and complete than any document of a specific location. Embracing both structural and phenomenological approaches, these four artists utilize a range of approaches— from photography, collage and nature prints to a freestanding wall of screen-printed paintings—to reconsider how we perceive and index our environs. This exhibition was organized by Max Warsh, in conjunction with Planthouse.
