Opening Reception | Danny McDonald: Sculptures from Repurposed Toys


McDonald's exhibition consists of sculpture from 2007 to the present. Toys and action figures from the franchised realms of science-fiction, horror, and fantasy are repurposed and combined into unsettling, comedic tableaus. Among other found objects and craft materials, these characters find themselves in new roles, precarious totems, and dollhouse-scale dilemmas.  McDonald has lived in New York since 1989. He moved to the city from Los Angeles to attend Cooper Union, where he met the artists who later formed Art Club2000. Together with art dealer Colin de Land, the group produced annual shows at his downtown gallery, American Fine Arts, Co., and exhibited internationally throughout the 1990s. Since then, McDonald has made exhibitions, video, and performance, as well as producing a commercial jewelry line called Mended Veil.

Discussion | A Conversation with Playwright Aleshea Harris (online)


Aleshea Harris is one of the most innovative, uncompromising, boundary-breaking dramatists of today. She celebrates the new publication of two of her plays. What to Send Up When It Goes Down is a play, a ritual, and a home-going celebration that bears witness to the physical and spiritual deaths of Black people as a result of racist violence. Is God Is, winner of the 2016 Obie Award and Relentless Award, collides the ancient, the modern, the tragic, the Spaghetti Western, and Afropunk in a dark comedy of two sisters enacting righteous revenge. Actors from both plays—Jessica Frances Dukes, Alfie Fuller, Kai Heath, Beau Thom, Denise Manning, Alana Raquel Bowers, and Naomi Lorrain—will perform a dramatic reading, followed by a conversation with Aleshea Harris and writer, educator, and cultural worker Nissy Aya.
