Jennifer Cecere, Abbot Doily Bench (installation view in Abbot Circle), 2024

VIDEO: Virtual Talk with Artist-in-Residence Jennifer Cecere

Jennifer Cecere presents a virtual discussion of her body of work and her site-specific installations on campus created in conjunction with “Abbot & Andover at 50: Then, Now, Next,” celebrating the 50th anniversary of Abbot Academy and Phillips Academy becoming a single institution. Her new works–an oversized and reflective doily on the Addison’s façade and one of the artist’s signature doily benches in Abbot Circle–reference and recontextualize the humble lace ornament. This program was organized with Andover’s Memorial Hall Library. (Recorded on May 22, 2024)
