Proceeds from this edition benefit the Summer 2018 exhibition at the Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College, The Conditions of being Art: Pat Hearn Gallery and American Fine Arts, Co. (1983-2004), examining the legacies of legendary art dealers Pat Hearn and Colin de Land.
Mary Heilmann’s decades-long career has alluded to the marriage of painting with other traditions and discourses of applied color, but one would be hard pressed to think of a precedent in her practice that would prepare us for a work that includes photographic material as Wedding Day does. Utilizing a photograph of Pat Hearn and Colin de Land’s 1999 civil ceremony, Wedding Day not only describes the marriage of dealers Pat Hearn and Colin de Land, but also the wide range of artistic methods the two championed.
