The temporary installation of artwork by Ricky Swallow and Lesley Vance at the Huntington constitutes not only the first time the work of these two artists - husband and wife, sculptor and painter - has been displayed together, but also the first time contemporary art has been installed in the mansion of Henry E and Arabella Huntington, a Beaux-Arts style structure built early in the 20th century that served as a backdrop to the Huntingtons' evolving collection of British and French art of the 18th century. Given the relationship of Swallow and Vance's work to art of the past, the resulting dialogue with the permanent collection will strike the visitor as both familiar and new. Exhibition Dates: November 10, 2012, to March 11, 2013 Huntington Library, Art Galleries, and Botanical Gardens, San Marino, CA, November.
