The exhibition “Pati Hill: Something other than either” was reviewed in an April 1 Frieze article, “How Pati Hill Photocopied the Impossible.” In the review, Assistant Editor Carina Bukuts praised “Something other than either” for its usage of photocopied images, which evoked themes of women’s labor in the mid-20th century. Frieze is a contemporary art magazine based in London, England.

“It’s hard to single out a highlight in this excellent small retrospective,” wrote Bukuts. “It’s the playfulness with which images and texts are treated that turns the copies into more than a reflection of their time; they are a call for artistic practices that are ‘something other than either’.”

The art collection, hosted by Kunstverein München, was made in collaboration with the Pati Hill Collection, housed at Arcadia University and overseen by Richard Torchia, director of Arcadia Exhibitions. Kunstverein München is a nonprofit art association in Munich, Germany.
