N-323

The inaugural year of the Great Hall Exhibitions series at the Institute of Fine Arts wraps up this Sunday, marking the final day to view the works of prominent sculptor Rachel Harrison. Two sculptures and one poster, on view in the expansive hall of the historic landmarked Duke House, can be seen from 1-4 p.m. The IFA is located at 1 East 78th Street in Manhattan.

The Great Hall Exhibitions present two exhibitions per year showcasing prominent contemporary art in the center of the IFA’s academic home and community. This exhibition marks the second in the series, the first of which featured the work of sculptor Lynda Benglis. The Great Hall Exhibitions will return to the IFA in fall 2014.

Rachel Harrison lives and works in New York. Recent solo exhibitions include CCSBard/Hessel Museum of Art, Annandale-on-Hudson (2009); Portikus, Frankfurt (2009); Whitechapel Gallery, London (2010); Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover (2013); and S.M.A.K., Ghent (2013). Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Centre Pompidou, Paris; and the StedelijkMuseum, Amsterdam among many others.

The works on view for the spring 2014 Great Hall Exhibition are courtesy of the artist and Greene Naftali, New York. This exhibition was made possible by the lead support received from Rachel Goodman Wilf and additional support from Linda Nochlin. For more information, visit http://www.nyu.edu/gsas/dept/fineart.
