Bortolami invites you to the opening of the second phase of Jutta Koether/Philadelphia, the fourth project of the gallery's Artist/City programming initiative. The exhibition takes place in a trinity house, miniscule three-story homes that once housed the working class of the city's more affluent areas and an architectural typology specific to the city of Philadelphia. Using the idea of the Trinity as its organizing principle, the exhibition develops in three parts: Past, Present, and Future. The previous phase, "Trinity: Past," focused on the paintings Koether made from 1995 onward, evincing her identity as a German artist who moved frequently between her homeland and the U.S., specifically the distinct Cologne and New York City art scenes. 

Please join Bortolami and the artist for the reception for the second phase, "Trinity: Present." Jutta will be there to walk us through the exhibition from 2 - 5 PM on Sunday, May 20th at 1637 Rodman Street, Philadelphia, PA.

Artist/City is an experimental programming initiative that pairs an artist with an American city for one year. Taking place in unconventional settings for longer durations than the standard gallery exhibition, these site-responsive projects grant artists freedom to present their work according to their own creative vision. Previous projects include Daniel Buren/Miami, Eric Wesley/St. Louis, Tom Burr/New Haven (alternatively titled BODY / BUILDING). Upcoming projects include Ann Veronica Janssens/Baltimore, and Barbara Kasten/Chicago.
