Intersections: Jean Meisel

50–65 Horizon Line

January 23 - May 4, 2014

Exhibition Images


50–65 Horizon Line brings together more than 50 of Jean Meisel’s small watercolors of horizon lines displayed in an intimate alcove of the Phillips house. Created from her imagination, the subtle landscapes and seascapes demonstrate the DC-based artist’s mastery of form, color, and light.

INTERSECTIONS


Intersections is a series of contemporary art projects that explores—as the title suggests—the intriguing intersections between old and new traditions, modern and contemporary art practices, and museum spaces and artistic interventions. Whether engaging with the permanent collection or diverse spaces in the museum, the projects suggest new relationships with their own surprises.

Many of the projects also riff on the nontraditional nature of the museum's galleries, sometimes activating spaces that are not typical exhibition areas with art produced specifically for those locations. 

Intersections is supported by Phillips International Forum members.
