anna von mertens roman empire

Now showing through Sunday, June 16, 2013
Curated by Kirsten Swenson

The Boston Center for the Arts is pleased to present a survey of Anna Von Mertens’ recent work, GOLD! AND OTHER FALLEN EMPIRES, curated by Kirsten Swenson. Typical of Von Mertens’ process, each of the three distinct series represented in the exhibition explores an avenue of history, taking a set of data that the artist then interprets into the subjective through the format of hand-stitching.
