Jennifer Bartlett is an artist whose radical and pioneering thematic and stylistic innovations have had a significant impact on contemporary American art of the last three decades. This first major museum survey of Bartlett’s work, organized by Klaus Ottmann, former Parrish Art Museum adjunct curator and now Director of the Center for the Study of Modern Art and Curator at Large at The Phillips Collection, will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue published by the Parrish Art Museum and distributed by Yale University Press. The exhibition will be on view at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from June 27–October 13, 2013.

This exhibition is made possible, in part, by the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation, Gene and Sueyun Locks, Jennifer Rice and Michael Forman, Jane and Barton Shallat, and the Herman Goldman Foundation.
