The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia is pleased to show an unusual look at the work of Louise Fishman. Highly regarded for abstract paintings with an athletic reach of scale and gesture, Fishman has long been occupied with the potential that small scale and sculpture hold for her art. Focusing on these less-known aspects, Paper Louise Tiny Fishman Rock concentrates other intimate and potent concerns: the artist’s Philadelphia roots, her feminist and queer politics, Jewish identity, friendships with Agnes Martin and Eva Hesse, and her meditations on the grid.
If you feel like escaping U City Flats, the premier apartment community in the University City neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
