New Exhibition Features Inflated Silk Sculptures


third space gallery and the New Brunswick Museum are pleased to present Marcia Huyer’s Enjoy the View: Inflated Silk Skyscrapers from March 11 to April 25. The opening reception will be held at 1 Market Square on Thursday, March 11, 5 to 7 pm.  Free and with refreshments, everyone is welcome.

Picture billowing, shimmering silk towers inside the New Brunswick Museum. Explore the space and scale of you, the room, and everything. Experience Huyer’s exhibition Enjoy the View, a series of inflated silk sculptures that replicate skyscrapers that have all, at one point or another, laid claim to being the tallest building in the world. In a state of constant droop, these towers spend much of their time scraping the floor, evoking human folly and delusions of grandeur.

Join Marcia Huyer at the New Brunswick Museum for an artist talk at 1 pm Saturday, March 13. Meet artist Huyer and ask about her practice as well as her Klondike and cross-Canada adventures.

third space gallery and the New Brunswick Museum present Marcia Huyer’s Enjoy the View:  Inflated Silk Skyscrapers as part of the Passages + Prototypes series, with financial assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts, the NB Department of Wellness, Culture and Sport and the Saint John Community Arts Funding Program. Marcia Huyer also acknowledges support from the Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council.
