The Salon will feature Camille Henrot's series "Jewels from the Personal Collection of Princess Salimah Aga Khan", curated by Astrid de Maismont and moderated by Carrie Springer.
The timing for this Salon is ideal:
The Salon will take place at the Emily Harvey Foundation, the last fluxhouse developed by Georges Maciunas. Camille will sit down with Carrie to discuss her work with a group of forty privileged guests.
We would like to extend a special thanks to Alexandra Baudelot, who premiered the work at Rosascape in Paris and has now shared it with Gertrude for this New York Salon.
About the artist
Camille Henrot was the recipient of the 2013 Silver Lion for a promising young artist in the International Exhibition Il Palazzo Enciclopedico (The Encyclopedic Palace) at the 55th Venice Biennale. Best-known for her videos and animated films combining drawn art, music and occasionally scratched or reworked cinematic images, Camille Henrot’s work blurs the traditionally hierarchical categories of art history.
