Gallery Talk | Build what we hate. Destroy what we love.: Curator's Tour


This exhibition brings together the work of three artists presenting a visual repertoire of Venezuelan contemporary realities that explore themes of migration, memory, and interconnectedness among an atomized nation. The artworks employ visual storytelling to delve into the social and material aspects of Venezuela’s mass exodus, focusing on what migrants carry and leave behind. Clothing artifacts explore the identity transformation that migration causes, highlighting personal journeys through textile weavings. Ethnographic and netnographic studies reveal the underlying forces that trigger these movements and condition individuals to adapt and harness violence to their favor. And fragmented family histories are presented through altered archives, mirroring migrants' experiences and their efforts to preserve and reimagine their own stories. Featuring work by: Cassandra Mayela, Juan Diego Pérez la Cruz, Ronald Pizzoferrato

Film | Just Mercy (2019) with Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx


After graduating from Harvard, Bryan Stevenson heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or those not afforded proper representation. One of his first cases is that of Walter McMillian, who is sentenced to die in 1987 for the murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite evidence proving his innocence. In the years that follow, Stevenson encounters racism and legal and political maneuverings as he tirelessly fights for McMillian's life. Director: Destin Daniel Cretton Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall, Brie Larson Michael B. Jordan is an American actor and producer. He is best known for his film roles as shooting victim Oscar Grant in the drama Fruitvale Station (2013), boxer Adonis Creed in Creed (2015), and Erik Killmonger in Black Panther (2018), all of which were written and directed by Ryan Coogler. Jordan reprised his role of Creed in Creed II (2018) and Creed III (2023); the latter also marked his directorial debut. Jamie Foxx is an American actor, comedian, and singer. He received acclaim for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the film Ray (2004), winning the Academy Award, BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild Award, and Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. That same year, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the crime film Collateral.

Opening Reception | Speaking in Two Tongues: A 2-Artist Exhibition


A dual exhibition featuring New York-based artist Logan Sylve and Angolan artist Cristiano Mangovo, explores the compelling narratives of the artists' distinct aesthetics. Sylve blends elements of surrealism, expressionism, illustration and animation in his prolific oeuvre using paint, ink, pencil and sgraffito. Mangovo's body of work, rich with folk symbolism and recurring motifs rooted in nature, ritual and physiognomy, reflects on the body as a vast planet - a symbol of both past brutality and future resilience. The show serves as a reflection on culture, tradition and the dynamic relationships between individuals and their bodies.
