Public Opening 6:00 – 8:00 pm


Jessi Reaves: all possessive lusts dispelled combines iconic modernist design with an irreverent aesthetic in sculpture that toys with functionality. Reaves often begins with found furniture, which she dismantles, converts, remakes, enhances, pads, and embellishes in ways that still allow the suggestion of physical contact or use. By breaking things open, she proposes that they be examined visually and in terms of their purpose in life.


The Club will host an opening reception and a public On the Exhibition conversation between Executive Director Janine Mileaf and Reaves in the salon.

Lecture and Opening gallery reception are free and open to all.
