‘Marlow Moss had short hair, combed completely flat and cut with absolute precision; had a high, white, forehead; had a narrow neck; had a small, oval, skull; had deep golden-brown eyes; her skin had a pale shine; her jaw and chin were a pure line; she was petite; had a sartorial style; wore jodhpurs and riding jackets; wore white blouses; Moss was a drag-king; a lesbian; a pseudo-man; her family did not support her choice to be a professional artist.’
‘Over half of the entire body of Moss’s work is only known through black and white documentation or sometimes only through a catalog or auction listing with no visual record at all.’
Please join us at Kunstverein for Meet Marlow Moss, an insert of Marlow Moss’s ‘Composition with Double Line and Blue Square’ (1934). This special event takes place Saturday 18 May from 5–8 pm and features a repeated performance by Dutch actor Martijn Nieuwerf, once at 6 pm and once at 7 pm.
On this occasion, Kunstverein Publishing is proud to launch the publication ‘Marlow Moss’ written by Riet Wijnen, designed by Marc Hollenstein.
‘Larry Bell and Sarah Crowner, Meet Marlow Moss’ opened on April 20 and runs until June 22.
Larry Bell and Sarah Crowner, Meet Marlow Moss is made possible with the support of Stichting Niemeijer Fonds; Stadsdeel Zuid; Het Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst and Kunstverein’s (Gold) members. With thanks to De Vleeshal, Middelburg
