Jennifer Bartlett: Hospital at The Drawing Center
Saturday, February 13, 2016

On view at The Drawing Center from January 22 through March 20, 2016 is Jennifer Bartlett: Hospital, the first museum exhibition of the artist's new series of ten pastels made in 2012. The works are based on a series of photographs that Bartlett took during an extended stay at Greenberg Pavilion at New York-Presbyterian Hospital / Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York.

in Hospital, Bartlett continues her long-established practice of close observation and responsiveness to her environment, but this time turns her attention to interior spaces and window views rather than landscapes, gardens, and atmospheric conditions. The drawings mine the liminal experience of "hospital time," characterized by long periods of waiting interspersed with highly organized routines of treatment, medication, and physical therapy. This combination of boredom and activity often heightens one's awareness of details, and Bartlett exploits these sensations to create images that eschew sentimentality while remaining indelibly poignant.

Executive director Brett Littman and New York-based poet and art critic Raphael Rubinstein will lead a walk-through of the exhibition on Saturday, February 13, 2:00 PM at The Drawing Center, 35 Wooster Street.
