Reflections on the Anniversary of 9/11
August 29 – September 29, 2017
Monday, September 11 – Workshop
performance by Sabba Elahi
Artists respond to the 9/11 attacks and the repercussions of those tragic events from which the world still reels.  Through an unsentimental perspective, earnest engagement, research and lived experience, combined with beauty and craft, they call attention to and offer opportunities for engagement about topics ranging from drone strikes in Pakistan, to those detained without trial in Guantanamo, to the destruction and looting of ancient and contemporary culture from Iraq to Syria.  Artists included in the show are Mahwish Chishty, Amber Ginsberg and Aaron Hughes, Jackie Kazarian, Michael Rakowitz, Alison Ruttan, Barbara Koenen, Mary King and Sabba Elahi.

Shock of the Now           
October 17 - November 17, 2017
Title of the Exhibit: “Shock of the Now” (A play on words from the book/TV Series “Shock of the New” by Robert Hughes.)
“The Hieronymus Objects Collection is inspired by the sixteenth-century Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch, whose stirring oil paintings depict fantastical scenes that instill both delight and terror. Like Bosch's paintings, the collection, which encompasses ceramics, designed objects, paintings, photography, prints, sculpture, and other curiosities, traverses the grotesque and picturesque, the sacred and profane. It is built around an appreciation for experimentation; sensuous, biomorphic forms; refined, carefully wrought materials; and a sense of humor and whimsy. While the collection spans both time and geography, contemporary ceramics from Asia and the US and twentieth-century American and European design are among its strengths."
