Rivane Neuenschwander, Secondary Stories, 2006
Ruby City presented the Texas debut of Secondary Stories, a room-sized installation by Brazilian artist Rivane Neuenschwander. The artist has become widely regarded for her often ephemeral work that explores narratives about language, nature, social interactions and the passing of time.
Showcasing Secondary Stories as well as three video installation works, the exhibition opened at Studio on April 30, 2016. Linda Pace Foundation trustee Kathryn Kanjo stated, “The Linda Pace Foundation is delighted to present this hypnotic installation by Rivane Neuenschwander. In Secondary Stories, she seems to take viewers through the looking glass: the outsized confetti makes us feel small and we become lost in the slowly shifting play of light and color. Since her Artpace residency in 2001, Rivane has achieved great acclaim, with major exhibitions at the New Museum 2010 and mal-entendidos at the Museu de Arte Moderna de Sao Paulo in 2014, which included a version of Omission Points, created at Artpace.”
