BassX: Jérémy GobéArt Exhibitions
Jérémy Gobé, who lives and works in Paris, imbues objects that he finds in his path with new purpose. In his room-sized installation, Freedom Leading Wool, Gobé uses fabric and mesh to create a dramatic enveloping space. The red wool, claimed from a shuttered factory in rural France, recalls a dying industry and its displaced craftsmen. This work references the 1830 masterpiece by Eugène Delacroix, Liberty Leading the People, recalling the movement, drama and patriotism of that iconic work. The exhibition at the Bass Museum of Art will be on view through February 28. In addition to this installation, a new work by Gobé will be on view in the storefront galleries at 23rd and Collins Avenue as part of tc: temporary contemporary, the Bass Museum of Art’s public art program.
