Sur la ligne/On the Line
571 Projects is proud to present Sur la ligne/On the Line, work by New Orleans native Jan Gilbert in her New York debut. Gilbert, a nationally recognized visual artist, has exhibited widely in galleries, museums, and cultural centers throughout the United States and abroad.
Sur la ligne/On the Line encompasses work that arose from a French exchange sponsored by the Alliance Française de la Nouvelle Orleans and the Ecole de Beaux Arts in St Etienne. Using photographs that she took whilst on her travels in France as a starting place, this body of work examines the memories held in objects and places, tracing a commemorative itinerary embalmed in a transparent membrane.
