Opening Reception | Feminism and the Legacy of Surrealism: 8 Artists Show Their Work


The artists in this show have been brought together by their affinity for the artistic and conceptual strategies of surrealism, using them to articulate a feminist perspective grounded in personal experience. While not surrealists themselves, they are a part of its legacy, taking up surrealism - which produced more important women artists than any other modernist movement - in its ability to tap into the unconscious. The paintings, drawings, films, sculptures, and performance photographs on view - by Betsy Damon, Brenda Goodman, June Leaf, Jeanne Liotta, Caitlin Keogh, Anne Minich, Elizabeth Murray, and Elaine Stocki - play with a private symbolism that merges elements of subjectivity with dream imagery and references to mass media. Seen together, the works in this show display a biting wit in the visceral quality of both their images and materiality. See link for COVID protocols.

Author Reading | Names of New York: Discovering the City's Past, Present and Future Through Its Place-Names (online)


The stories of places lie in their names. Nowhere is this more true than in the names of the streets, parks, neighborhoods, and boroughs themselves of New York City. Author Joshua Jelly-Schapiro explores the power of naming to shape experience and our sense of place. From Bowery to Brooklyn, Jelly-Schapiro traces the ways in which native Lenape, Dutch settlers, British invaders, Revolutionary war heroes, and successive waves of immigrants have left their marks on the city's map.

Opening Reception | Found in Translation: A Story of Language, Play, and a Personal Archive


This solo exhibition by Golnar Adili is a formal investigation of language, spanning 14th-century Persian poetry, didactic Iranian texts, and the artist's own family archives. Featuring artist books, photographic and textual prints, and an installation of modular wooden sculptures, the exhibition embodies a multidisciplinary exploration of diasporic identity. Born in Virginia, Adili migrated with her family to Tehran as a young child in 1979 in the wake of the Iranian Revolution. Her father, a leftist writer and activist, was forced into exile soon after their arrival, and eventually escaped back to the U.S. in 1981. Adili remained in Iran with her mother, whose multiple attempts at immigration were unsuccessful. Forced to live apart for many years, they kept in touch through letters and photographs sent back and forth - materials that now make up a vast archive of separation and longing. By reactivating these materials in layered prints and artist books, Adili transforms distilled memories into living artworks. See link for COVID protocols.

Opening Reception | Primordial Soup: Bringing Light to Invisible Phenomena


Dove Allouche's exhibition works with photographic processes, but also with drawing, printmaking, and scientific means, to bring light to natural phenomena that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Throughout his work, he has created a "syntax of reproducibility" in which he masters and reinvents various mechanical processes, parsing them out step by step or slowing them down for examination. The means of representation become subjects in themselves, poetically intertwined with what is happening within the images.

Talk | Reevaluating Our French Allies (online)


Norman Desmarais will discuss recent discoveries about the Count de Rochambeau’s army that counter popular assumptions—focusing primarily on the recently published diary of the Count de Lauberdière, which includes details that are not covered in any other French diaries. Serving as an aide-de-camp on General Rochambeau’s staff, the young and well-educated Lauberdière provided a unique perspective of the war, including descriptions of the French army’s camp in Newport, the long march to Yorktown, the siege and capture, and a fascinating examination of the people and their distinctive colonial culture.
