Jonathan Chapline recently unveiled a unique exhibition entitled Virtual Window, which was staged at the Hawkins Ferry House, built to display the namesake’s collection of modern art on the shores of Lake St. Clair. Working off a selection of historical images, blueprints and present day images of the architectural space as well as Ferry’s collection (most of which was posthumously donated to the Detroit Institute of Art), the Brooklyn-based artist created four large paintings, a diptych portraying elongated arched windows, and a sculpture inspired by Giacometti’s Standing Woman. Learn more about the show now installed at the house currently owned by JJ and Anthony Curis, founders of Library Street Collective here.
