MUSEUM ACQUISITION: DIANE MEYER

Photograph ‘Paradise School (Class One)’ by Diane Meyer.

We are delighted to share, that the Hood Museum of Art has acquired Paradise School (Class One) by Diane Meyer, for its permanent collection.

The photograph will be on view at the museum, in a group exhibition scheduled for 2020. Klompching Gallery will also be presenting a solo exhibition of Diane Meyer's Berlin series in Fall 2019.

"In the class photographs, the faces of the students, or what would normally be the main focal points of the image, are obscured with cross-stitch embroidery made to resemble the digital pixel structure of the image. By obscuring what would typically be the most important parts of the image, otherwise overlooked details are brought into focus such as body language and other embodiments of social convention. I am interested exploring these details to reveal not only the relationships between the various figures, but also how, even at a very young age, children were taught and instructed to pose in particular ways, often based on gender”.—Diane Meyer.
