Artist Talk at Harvard University: Anna Von Mertens

Anna Von Mertens will talk about her solo exhibition Measure, at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. Von Mertens uses the structures of quilting and drawing to explore the frontiers of human understanding. In this commissioned exhibition, she explores the life and work of Henrietta Leavitt, one of the women “computers” hired to study glass-plate astronomical photographs at the Harvard College Observatory a century ago.

Anna Von Mertens is represented by Elizabeth Leach Gallery.
