LongHouse Reserve Presents: Jack, Larger than Life
Join LongHouse Reserve this Saturday, June 26 at 5pm for the opening reception of Jack, Larger than Life, an exhibition celebrating the extraordinary life and work of LongHouse founder Jack Lenor Larsen. Honoring Jack's generous, generative spirit, this exhibition is an invitation to "open eyes to alternatives."
His innovative textiles are presented side by side with his various "enthusiasms," the objects of craft and art he assiduously gathered, as well as the clothing he collected and wore. Over 100 objects from the several thousand in LongHouse Reserve's collection are juxtaposed with Jack's pronouncements and videotapes of his interviews.
Nearly fifty iconic Larsen textile lengths fill the gallery with color, texture, and pattern, including major commissions such as Leverlin for Lever House, New York's first International Style high rise; Swazi Drapery for the Wolf Trap Theater; and Magnum, with light-reflecting mirror Mylar, for the Phoenix Opera House.
Tickets are $10 and free for LongHouse members: https://longhouse.org/products/jack-larger-than-life?mc_cid=b4733bf2cf&mc_eid=1a422d6f42
Jack, Larger than Life will be on view through September 5, 2021.
Venue: LongHouse Reserve
