Trinity: Present (Phase II) by JUTTA KOETHER is taking place in a three-story house also called ‘Trinity’ in Philadelphia. This location is currently hosting one of the experimental exhibition initiatives created by Bortolami Gallery in New York.

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.

Trinity: Present comprises a succinct survey of JUTTA KOETHERs black paintings from 2001 to present. KOETHER’s Volume paintings, a series of works she made in 2001, some of her earliest experimentations with black paint, are dispersed throughout the house.*

Trinity: Present (Phase II) by JUTTA KOETHER is on view at Bortolami Artist / City in Philadelphia until September 9, 2018.
