Opening Reception | Hindsight Bias: Innocence and Identity


Sherrill Roland’s interdisciplinary practice deals with concepts of innocence, identity, and community, often filtered through minimalist gestures, specific materials, and various layers of abstraction. For more than three years, Roland's right to self-determination was lost to wrongful incarceration. He spent ten months in prison before being exonerated and returning to an artistic practice that developed into a vehicle for expression, reflection, and emotional release.

Opening Reception | The Medieval Body: The Human Form Over a Thousand Years


The title of the exhibition refers to both a literal thread of figuration that runs throughout the works in the presentation, as well as the complex and often shifting symbolism of the human body in the medieval period. For thinkers and artists of that time, the human body served as a rich source of religious and philosophical significance, one that was in a constant state of flux between idealism and disfigurement. While the early Middle Ages reserved representations of suffering bodies to the margins of their world, the later Middle Ages displayed wounded bodies in the most central spaces of public life. The exhibition tells a unique story about the human form as both a physical entity and a recognizable metaphor. Presenting works spanning the course of a thousand years, this exhibition offers insight into the body as an essential image-making tool with far-reaching implications for the development of art in the European Middle Ages.

Discussion | A Tale of Two Omars: Omar Sharif Jr. in Conversation with Bestselling Novelist Andre Aciman (online)


Omar Sharif, Jr., actor, activist, and author (A Tale of Two Omars: A Memoir of Family, Revolution, and Coming Out During The Arab Spring) in conversation with New York Times bestselling author Andre Aciman (Call Me By Your Name, Find Me, Out of Egypt). The grandson of Hollywood legend Omar Sharif on his father’s side and Holocaust survivors on his mother’s, Omar Sharif Jr. learned early on how to move between Muslim and Jewish worlds. When, in the wake of the Arab Spring, he made the difficult decision to come out in the pages of The Advocate, he knew his life would forever change. What he didn’t expect was the backlash that followed.
