SACI Alumna Adrien Broom Featured in Smithsonian Magazine for "HOLDING SPACE" Photographic Series

SACI alumna Adrien Broom is featured in Smithsonian Magazine for HOLDING SPACE, a photographic series exploring the historic homes of artists, writers, and art patrons.

HOLDING SPACE, a photographic project by SACI Spring 2003 alumna Adrien Broom featured in the September issue of Smithsonian Magazine, explores the historic homes of artists and writers such as Mark Twain, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, the arts patron Florence Griswold, and the photographer Alice Austen.

After visiting the former home of Jackson Pollock and his wife, the painter Lee Krasner, Adrien was struck by the details and relics left behind.

“You see the borders of some of the most famous works to come out of America,” Broom says, “and they all merge together to create something so special that is only in this one place.” – Adrien Broom on HOLDING SPACE

Her photographs recreate scenes of the artists at work, bringing a new sense of vitality into how we think about some of America’s greatest artists, writers, and arts patrons. In the works, Broom use actors to imagine life in the historic homes and studios of these great figures.
