Circulation of Light

Courtney Egan

Crystal Gazers features groupings of cast glass medallions infused with light from a single channel projection cascading from forged metal branches. Fountain is a wall-mounted collection of cast glass “bottles” with projected water spilling from one to the next. Finally, Sleepwalker is a motion-activated video projection offering the viewer the experience of witnessing the budding and then contraction of a single bloom. Read More

Rooted in direct study, these works call upon the natural world for guidance and inspiration. It is, however, the soulful, inventive and spiritual side of these works that truly define them. Alexander is able to capture a raw power made possible through a deep understanding of the complexities that make up the natural world. Read More

Deborah Kass: feel good paintings for feel bad times

Deborah Kass

Drawing from contemporary society, Broadway musicals, Yiddish and prominent art figures, she continues to incorporate lyrics and vernacular, melding art history and pop culture in vibrant, resonating compositions reminiscent of Frank Stella and Ellsworth Kelly. The work is depictive of the current posture of popular and political culture and the ensuing dysphoria, especially in contrast to the optimism of the postwar era. Read More

Beautiful Dirt: Ballgowns of Lightness & Dark

Lesley Dill

Beautiful Dirt: Ballgowns of Lightness and Dark is Lesley Dill’s ninth exhibition with the gallery and was inspired by the ballroom culture of New Orleans and the adornment of the body. Featured are nine gowned figures centered by a cascading chandelier. The figures range in size from a tabletop sculpture to 7 feet tall, and are constructed of billowing fabric adorned with embroidered letters, flowing skirts of hand-cut copper, or hundreds of pieces of metal foil and feathers. Some of the figures have dramatic head embellishments or collars and others are donned with small, bird-like heads, paying homage to surrealist Max Ernst. Read More

The installation, vibrant and revelatory, consists of four video monitor-based objects and a Stasseo (stained-glass-video) – a technique the artist developed utilizing multiple projections, painting and 3D elements to realize large, installed-video compositions.

I Don't Understand

Robert Hannant

“I Don’t Understand” is a digital video installation by multi-media artist Robert Hannant. The single projection made up of multiple videos, each with its own significant soundtrack, symbolizes the fractured environment of a stranger’s mind. Each “window” of this mind laid bare is relatable on some level, forcing viewers to find themselves simultaneously caught in the uncomfortable role of both voyeur and object of scrutiny. The installation invites a personal experience, allowing each viewer to control his/her engagement. Read More

Segregation Story

Gordon Parks

“Segregation Story” includes never-before-published images originally part of a series photographed for a 1956 Life magazine photo-essay assignment, “The Restraints: Open and Hidden,” which documented everyday lives of an extended black family living in the rural South under Jim Crow segregation. This compelling series challenged the myth of racism, demonstrating that the ambitions, responsibilities and routines of this family were no different than those of white Americans.
