Two’s Company

February 13 – 14, 2010

Parlour’s thirteenth exhibition, Two’s Company, features the work of six artist couples living and working in New York City. The exhibition sets out to explore the relationship between their individual artistic practices, raising questions such as: Are there any conscious/ subconscious similarities visible in their bodies of work? Does the former hold true for artists who work in different media? What does each admire about the other’s work? What do they find inspiring? To what extent do they influence each other? Each artist’s piece in the show has been selected by their significant other, and in some cases, collaborative pieces have been made specifically for the occasion. Two’s Company is hosted by Parlour co-founder, Leslie Rosa-Stumpf, and her husband, Lawrence Stumpf, in their Clinton Hill apartment.
