Largest Exhibition of Marcia Hafif Works in the US since PS1 Coming to Fergus McCaffrey

April 6, 2016

The upcoming show at Fergus McCaffrey Gallery will focus on a series of works, created between 1961 and 1969 by the legendary American artist Marcia Hafif. The exhibition provides an insight into her life in Rome, Italy, where the paintings and paper works were made. For quite a long time, these works were unknown to the public, and kept in a storage. Although the images themselves do not reveal much of Italy in a figurative manner, they speak through color and shape about the phenomena that had influence over Hafif. They also reflect on her decision to settle in Rome, instead of Florence where she was headed, and to establish a studio in the Eternal City.
