September 16 – October 28, 2007
Gravesend, which inaugurates The Society's 92nd season and its 28th in the Bergman Gallery, is dedicated to the memory of Edwin Bergman. Through his commitment to new and provocative art, Ed championed all The Society stands for. We remain grateful for his outstanding example, friendship, service, and support.
Gravesend is a co-production of The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, La Biennale di Venezia, and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Torino.
