Ethel Shipton: Listening to Berlin
Ruiz-Healy Art is pleased to present Ethel Shipton: Listening to Berlin. Please join us on Wednesday, September 18th for an artist reception from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. This solo exhibition will feature a diverse mix of Ethel Shipton’s art ranging from large-scale screenprints, sculpture, and installation.
Inspired by her 2017-2018 Blue Star Contemporary Berlin Residency, Ethel Shipton’s solo exhibition at Ruiz-Healy Art will be set in Berlin. While in residence at the Künsterhaus Bethanian, Shipton took interest in the street art and graffiti culture throughout the city. “I started taking pictures of the graffiti, and the graffiti took me to look at other parts of the city that were interesting to me. So, it was a combination of starting with the graffiti and walking through [Berlin],” shared Shipton. The visual information spray-painted throughout the city defines a cultural manifesto of freedom, unification, and community.
Ethel Shipton: Listening to Berlin will be on view through October 26th.
