Re:Reading the Love Letter | The Reading Room

Rebecca Carter at The Reading Room





Re: Reading The Love Letter, new work by Rebecca Carter, will open on Saturday, November 5

from 7 to 9 pm at The Reading Room, 3715 Parry Avenue, and continue through November 26.


Carter’s work investigates human gesture in its myriad forms through drawing, video and sculpture.

Humor and intellect are entwined and the familiar is often embedded with unexpected jolts.

The Love Letter is an ongoing project which originated with a personal letter from an older relative.

Carter has deconstructed/abstracted it for its linguistic, psychological, familial, historical and

aesthetic properties.


Carter’s MFA is in Fiber and Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago.

Her work has been exhibited at 500X Gallery where she was a member and Road Agent

Gallery, 2006 New American Talent and 2011 Texas Biennial at Arthouse at the Jones Center

in Austin, Corcoran Museum in Washington, D.C., The Sky Dive in Houston, artsReligare in

New Delhi and the Cheongju Craft Biennale in Korea.
