We are pleased to share our most recent project for the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), the catalogue for their upcoming exhibition, David Lynch: The Unified Field. Acclaimed for his work as a filmmaker, Lynch began his creative career as a painting student at PAFA. Since that time, alongside his more widely known films, he has continued his work as a visual artist, creating a large body of paintings, photographs, prints, and drawings. The show, the first major American survey of Lynch’s work, brings together close to ninety works of art from the past five decades, including early works that have never been publicly displayed.
Along with the exhibition of paintings and drawings, PAFA will also be screening several early films created while Lynch was still living in Philadelphia. In addition, the Philadelphia Film Society will be screening every feature film by Lynch, in partnership with the exhibition.
David Lynch: The Unified Field was produced by Marquand Books and published by Philadelphia Academy of the Fine Arts in association with the University of California Press. Susan E. Kelly designed and typeset the 160-page catalogue, which includes an overview essay by PAFA senior curator Robert Cozzolino.
The exhibition opens September 13 and runs through January 11, 2015. For more information, visit the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. To purchase a copy of the catalogue, visit the University of California Press.
