After the Plaster Foundation, or, “Where can we live?” is an exhibition of twelve artists and artist groups with roots in New York City asking critical questions about home, property, and the Earth, and who has access to these things under capitalism.
Shelter Is is an exhibition that brings together the work of nine artists whose practices consider the physical and psychological function of shelter, its construction, and its improvisational nature. The works on view also explore questions of who seeks shelter, and for what reasons—political, socioeconomic, or environmental.
Oracle of the Caduceus is a rooftop installation, which gallery visitors are permitted to walk on top and inside of, considers the social histories of home and sanctuary as well as the familial tradition of carpentry that, like heirlooms, is passed down from generation to generation. This installation will be activated by a series of site-specific performances curated by the artist throughout the exhibition
On View ● September 12 - December 28, 2020
Northern Oracle is an ambitious rooftop installation that emerges from the floor of the gallery, and is accompanied by a series of mixed media drawings. Visitors may access both the rooftop and its floor level attic, while contemplating and enacting upon these vantage points. Northern Oracle provides a performative area: a locale for demonstration of power, influence, and for “shouting from the rooftop.”
Opening Reception ● January 18, 2020—2:00 pm
Domestic Thresholds by Heather Hart, Edra Soto, and Rodney Taylor
This exhibition featured projects that explore how people build connections to others both inside and outside the walls of those structures we call home.
During the opening, dancer Naila Ansari, media artists Mani Mehrvarz and Maryam Muliaee, and musician Curtis Lovell presented a collaborative, multimedia art project that used new media, performance, and live dance to transform the static physical space of the exhibition into a dynamic interactive environment. The audience was invited to experience the work by watching the filmed performance on their mobile phones in the exhibition space.
