Risa Friedman: Rectangled
On view through March 31, 2023
Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art
Boulder, Colorado

Risa Friedman’s “Rectangled” is a nostalgic homage to counting rectangles in the puzzle section of the newspaper in her grandparents’ kitchen in Queens, New York. Friedman transforms the architecture of BMoCA’s interior brick-lined lobby space into an immersive puzzle of parallelograms through the presentation of framed prints and photo-covered blocks. Friedman will activate the installation throughout the month-long duration of the exhibition by adding photo-covered blocks for visitors to count and rearrange. Through this interactivity, she simultaneously creates the opportunity to experience child-like wonder while attributing the stacking of right angles to the inescapable tasks of adulthood.
