A few pictures from this past Salon

    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:

    1. Camille Henrot was just honored with the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale 2013, awarded to the most promising young talent! Read about it here.
    2. "Jewels from the Personal Collection of Princess Salimah Aga Khan" is the first body of work Camille worked on when she set foot in New York City in 2011.
    3. This will be the first time this body of work is shown in the US.

    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.

    Ticket includes:

    • One hour conversation with the curator and the artist
    • You can meet the artist, interact and comment
    • Beverages, including Pommery champagne

      About the artist

      Camille Henrot

      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.

      This was my first gertrude salon and i will certainly come to more. it is a great idea; i am glad to have discovered you. i thought that the "conversation" between the curator and artist was more work (for everyone involved: artist; interlocutor and audience) than it was worth. i would have preferred, in the end, a more directed discussion of the artist's work, even if that meant a more old-fashioned lecture-ish mode of presentation.

      Amazing evening! thanks again. some microphones might have been appropriate maybe for the half-deaf like me ;)

      Gertrude's new offices are great. light, airy, spacious and full of super art. a really inspiring work environment.
