Heather Bursch
In House and On View

July 6 - August 10, 2014


PARMER is proud to present In House and On View, a three-part exhibition staging an accelerated version of the traditional gallery cycle while exploring frameworks around primary and secondary information in our experience of objects and sites. Two reading and discussion groups were organized in tandem with the exhibition on related themes. In the first Coleen Asper joined PARMER for a discussion around her recent See Something Say Something text published by Paper Monument–more information here. Subsequently Ben Davis led a discussion group on August 3rd Ben Davis reflecting on his recent text Art and Investment, published by art agenda in March of 2014–more information here.

Installation views and descriptions from In House and On View below.

The first presentation Helen Frankenthaler: In House And On View, a work by Heather Bursch(July 6 - July 13) took place at our Bedford Stuyvesant location, and is augmented by a concurrent show at the Craig F. Starr gallery located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.



Central to the second installation is Missing Objects: Carl Andre at PARMER(July 14 - August 2, 2014) which includes a video projection of Carl Andre sculptures extracted from their contexts. This show was augmented by an exhibition at Dia:Beacon, where these specific objects were on view.



Up For Adoption: The Drama of the Gifted Child
(August 3 - 10) was the third and final iteration of In House and On View. Here, Bursch presented three sculptures that staged a set of secondary market relations in which the "gifted child" is both artist, collector and artwork.
