Hillerbrand + Magsamen
on view: October 30 – December 29, 2013
reception: November 16, 2013 from 4-6pm
CPW is proud to present Family Portrait an exhibition featuring the works of the husband and wife team of Stephen Hillerbrand and Mary Magsamen.
Steeped in Fluxus practice, which calls for the blurring of boundaries between the intersection of art, life, and ritual, Hillerbrand+Magsamen’s work incorporates humor, performance, photography, video, and everyday objects. They expand their personal life into a contemporary art conversation about family dynamics, suburban life, and American consumer excess.
