Opening Reception |
A group exhibition of photographers who engage and expand the practice of contemporary German photography. The exhibition considers how photographic production in Germany has evolved, expanding past its identifications with the Becher school, Minimalism, and Conceptual Art. While photographers continue to employ these aesthetics and formal tropes – seriality and the index, for example – the turn towards performance, humor, process, and an integration of multiple media is producing invigorating works that challenge the conventional associations of “German Photography.”

Opening Reception |
Chalda Maloff's new artworks explore the transient nature of existence via intimate portraits of imagined lifeforms. Each such conjectured creature is fragile and vulnerable. It resides in an uncertain universe, as do we all. Its delicate membranes and exquisite body parts are at times almost absorbed into the environment, casings vanishing as densely layered detail gives way to inscrutable miasma or arbitrary splatter. And yet, expressively rendered in exaggerated scale, each lifeform faces the viewer undeterred. It is fully present in time and space. Micaela de Vivero uses installation art to talk about relationships between the viewer and the art, between structure and movement, and between space and circulation. Lines, volumes and colors have become de Vivero's tools to create communication between the art and its environment.

Derived from visceral sources yet thoughtfully planned and meticulously finished, Krueger’s art is the result of intensive self-reflection resulting from his confrontations with isolation that stem back to early childhood, or perhaps even from birth.

Promises to Keep examines the close relationship between autobiography, self-portraiture, and performance in the construction and (re)presentation of "identity." Exploring the use of the artist’s body in self-representational acts of eleven female artists from Pakistan who span three generations, the exhibition looks at how self-parody, activism, nationalism, popular culture, and feminism cross paths in these enactments. Memory, history, gender, and socio-political/cultural constructs coexist within the same space when performing these self-portraits.Featuring work by: Bani AbidiNilofar AkmutHurmat ul AinNaazish AttaullahLali KhalidAmber Hammad Salima HashmiMehr JavedAyesha JatoiRabbya NaseerZoya Siddiqui

Opening Reception |
This extraordinary exhibition highlights recent sculptures, paintings, and installations by the maverick Czech-born New York artist Pavel Kraus. At the core of the show are new works centered on the artist’s recurring theme of “futuristic archeology.” In his vessel-like sculptures, made of lead, marble and resin; marble floor pieces; and encaustic paintings often inlaid with jewel-like bits of resin, Kraus melds the past, present and future.
