“Pickering’s Harem” by Amélie Bouvier gathers all the works of the extensive like-named series of drawings produced by the artist during the period of 2017 – 2018. The catalogue, which includes a text by Allyson Unzicker, will be launched at Untitled Miami Beach. The title of this series of fine and meticulous drawings refers to astronomer Edward C. Pickering, director of the Harvard Observatory from 1877 to 1919, who was the first to hire a large number of female staff.
