Elective Affinities: Edmund de Waal

The Frick Collection, New York

Until 17 November 2019

In a first for The Frick Collection, the contemporary artist and author Edmund de Waal has been invited to make eight new works in dialogue with the museum’s sumptuous interiors and world-renowned Old Masters paintings. Known for his exquisite compositions of porcelain vessels, within minimalist cabinets, and his 2010 best-selling family memoir, The Hare with Amber Eyes, De Waal will create site-specific works made of porcelain, steel, gold, marble and glass. The perfect companion to The Frick’s own substantial collections of Chinese, Meissen and Sèvres porcelain.
