Overview

Forbidden Fruit: Chris Antemann at MEISSEN

The Frick presented Antemann’s major works for Meissen, The Love Temple, and The Pleasure Garden (inspired by Fragonard’s famous Progress of Love series) as well as a selection of smaller works, in the context of our permanent collection of 18th-century French art.

Contemporary porcelain artist Chris Antemann, who grew up in nearby Johnstown, has spent the last several years working in residence at the Meissen porcelain manufactory’s art campus in Germany. Her playful porcelain fantasies revive both the materials and methods used in producing 18th-century figurines, with an approach that puts a contemporary spin on the typical subject matter of flirtation and seduction common during the Rococo period. Antemann’s figures enact scenes of romance and seduction while aiming a knowing wink at traditional gender roles.

The Frick will present Antemann’s major works for Meissen, The Love Temple, and The Pleasure Garden (inspired by Fragonard’s famous Progress of Love series) as well as a selection of smaller works, in the context of our permanent collection of 18th-century French art. The artist will also be curating a selection of porcelain from our permanent collection and installing work in our 18th-century French salon period room, which will be open for the first time since 2003 for this special exhibition.
