Exhibition Opening


Thursday, October 17th  

6PM – 9PM

Join us for the opening of the Mansion’s latest collaboration with The Historic House Trust’s Contemporary Art Partnerships. For this exhibition, New York-based artist Peter J. Hoffmeister views the Mansion as an artifact, and a silent witness to the founding of the United States. Drawing on the history of the Mansion, the personal experiences of its inhabitants, American history, and current events,

Hoffmeister has created site-specific installations for the Mansion’s period rooms.

These works utilize historical texts, maps, architecture, and found imagery, creating an experience that traces the histories of social phenomena and ideologies into the present. This approach, drawing direct connection between past and present, makes Hoffmeister’s work uniquely suited to Morris-Jumel.

The event is FREE but advanced registration is required.
