Stephanie Lempert: NEW/NOW
Opening Reception: Sunday, January 12, 2014
NEW/NOW: Stephanie Lempert explores systems of visual and verbal communication through sculpture, photography and video. Lempert is fascinated by language and infuses her work with recorded snippets of conversations, personal histories, and memories. She is both a collector and preserver of sounds and stories, sourcing the raw material for her work from the vast urban landscape of New York City as well as from one-on-one interviews she conducts with her subjects.
NEW/NOW: Stephanie Lempert will survey these bodies of work, as well as debut a video project and three new Language of Space photographs.
Based in Brooklyn, New York, Lempert is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. Her work has been exhibited at Socrates Sculpture Park, The Armory Show, Art Basel Miami, the Moscow World Fine Art Fair, the 2006 New York Video Festival and many other venues in the U.S. and abroad.
