We are happy to announce the acquisition of Mimi Herbert’s Butterfly by The Phillips Collection. Butterfly will be featured in the upcoming Phillips exhibition Pour, Tear, Carve: Material Possibilities in the Collection opening on March 18th. The exhibition highlights the role that sculptural material plays in the artistic process and reveals how materials inform space and memory while engaging the senses. Herbert’s unique practice of forming acrylic sheets makes her work an exemplary inclusion in this exhibit, and we are excited to bring her work to a larger audience through this exhibition.
