"Dancing with Truffaut: Stephanie Brody-Lederman" opens on October 24 and remains on view through January 3, 2016. An Opening Reception will be held on Oct. 24 from 4 to 6 p.m.
“The exhibition is titled “Dancing with Truffaut’ because it is in homage to the film maker Francois Truffaut’s exploration of the seemingly small, ordinary aspects of everyday life. He exposed both psychological and physical phenomena and revealed their subtle beauty within a complex simplicity.”
The eight oil and acrylics on canvas that comprise this intimate show were completed during 2014 and 2015 in the artist’s New York City and East Hampton studios.
Ms. Brody-Lederman received Top Honors in the 2013 Guild Hall Artist Members Exhibition. The awards judge was Elisabeth Sussman who is the Curator and Sondra Gilman Curator of Photography at the Whitney Museum of American Art, as well as the Curator of the 2012 and 1993 Whitney Biennial exhibitions.
This is the second solo show at Guild Hall for Ms. Brody-Lederman. Her first was in 2004 as a result of her taking Top Honors in the 2003 Artists Members Exhibition. At that time the judge was Carolyn Lanchner, former Curator of the Museum of Modern Art. Only one other artist, Athos Zacharias, has ever twice won in the show’s history.
Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street, East Hampton, NY 11937. www.guildhall.org.
