Please join us to celebrate the opening of Jennifer Packer’s first solo museum presentation and the launch of the Renaissance Society’s 2017-18 season.
Packer will present a public artist talk during the opening reception at 6pm.
Tenderheaded brings together multiple strands in the artist’s practice, ranging from portraiture to the funerary bouquet. Based in observation, improvisation, and memory, Packer’s canvases are intimate and contemplative, rendered in loose strokes and strong color. Like the exhibition title, the juxtaposition of these various modes of representation and production point to possibilities both bodily and emotional, fragile and strong.
