Quimetta Perle at Brooklyn's Central Library

Quimetta Perle

Quimetta Perle is exhibiting artist's books and hybrid forms that combine sequins and beads with digitally produced images at Brooklyn's Central Library at Grand Army Plaza.

The reception is in the Dweck Center Lobby downstairs. "Part of the Pattern" is on the second floor in the balcony cases. There are other exhibits in other parts of the library.

In this exhibition, women's faces and forms emerge from backgrounds of layered patterns. Some confront the viewer, while others look inward. In one piece, a woman has burst from the background to dance on a tightrope. This show reveals the process through which images are created, and then remade into the pages of a book, a collage, a work on canvas. 

Library Hours: Mon. 9-6. Tue.-Thur. 9-9. Fri. 9-6. Sat. 10-6. Sun. closed.

The show will be up until June 13.
