Silvia Gruner and The Americas Society

Harpo Foundation is pleased to provide project support toward the production of a new video work by Silvia Gruner called ‘Hemisphere.’ This two-channel video will premiere at The Americas Society in conjunction with the exhibition, “Hemispheres: A Labyrinth Sketchbook by Silvia Gruner” and will be seen alongside a selection of earlier film installations and photographs by the artist.

“Hemispheres: A Labyrinth Sketchbook by Silvia Gruner” aims to introduce the work of one of the most important Mexican artists of her generation to New York audiences. Despite her being a key contributor to the development of an experimental art scene in Mexico City in the early 1990s, Gruner remains largely under-recognized in the US.(Excerpt and art work below selected from grant proposal. All works are copyright of the artist.)
