Opening Reception | A Midsummer’s Dream: Group Exhibition


A group exhibition of paintings and photographs that capture the mystical atmosphere of the summer season. The theme is explored through a series of landscapes as well as domestic interiors. Dreamy forests crossed by placid creeks evoke the majesty and enchantment of nature. An amber-like glow illuminates hazy Californian landscapes, while inordinately large flowers burst out of the canvas, demanding our undivided attention. More intimately, we spot the garden or sitting room of a Mexican house, decorated with vibrant touches of color. In the background, a tapestry of bright green foliage, blessed by the warm rays of the sun. In another series of still lifes, books, fruit, and flower vases are carefully arranged on a table, perhaps simple delights in a restful summer afternoon.

A group exhibition curated by Erik Verhagen that explores the paradoxical nature of photography, its physical and indexical qualities that link it to reality, and its constructive potential, so amenable to cross-fertilization and manipulation. The title, borrowed from Mel Bochner’s Misunderstandings: A Theory of Photography (1970), highlights the ambiguous nature of photography, its capacity to be informed and also deformed by the historical and sociological tensions inherent to image (re)production.

Opening Reception | Yvonne Wells: Play The Hand That's Dealt You


The first New York solo exhibition of Alabama-based artist Yvonne Wells. Born in 1939 in Tuscaloosa, Wells is known for her intricate narrative quilts depicting American history subjects, pop culture figures, and religious subject matter. As a self- taught artist living and working in the same region as the enslaved female quilters from the rural Alabama community known as Gee’s Bend, Wells is aware of heritage techniques, yet cleaves to her own contemporary visual vernacular. Through a practice that illuminates quilt making as a form of fine art and not simply craft, she has developed a style that uniquely melds geometric abstraction with bold figuration. The evolution of Wells’ personal aesthetic and technical mastery will be seen through over a dozen large works on view, spanning three decades of the artist’s career.

Book Discussion | Working Girl: On Selling Art and Selling Sex


The portrait of a young artist making both a living and a life. As a young artist trying to make a living in New York without sacrificing all her time to paying rent, Sophia Giovannitti turned to sex work: first, telling herself it was part of her art, and then quickly accepting it as simply the way to make the most money in the shortest possible time. Weaving between the art world and the sex industry, she learned how much the two markets have in common: both built on the buying and selling of creativity and desire, authenticity and intimacy. The power of each lies in believing—or pretending—they can provide meaning outside of monetary exchange.   In this searching and provocative work, moving from the author’s own experiences to political analyses and the workings of the contemporary art world, Sophia Giovannitti asks how we might face the great dilemma of the art and sex industries head on: what happens to desire, beauty, creativity, and autonomy when everything is a transaction? Giovannitti finds a way to commit her life to art, to intimacy, and to freedom on her own terms.

Talk | A "Time Capsule" Reveals a Father's Wartime Experiences (online)


Sgt. Salvatore Distefano was born in 1923 in West New York, New Jersey. During World War II, he served in the 120th Evac. Unit and helped liberate Buchenwald concentration camp. After the war, Sgt. Distefano lived in New Jersey, where he raised four children with his wife Frances and worked for forty years as an engineer. He rarely discussed his wartime experiences. After Sgt. Distefano died in 2014, his son Dan Distefano discovered what he refers to as "my dad's time capsule," a collection of objects that his father had hidden in 1952 "ready to tell the story he could not." Dan and his siblings Nina Picone and Paul Distefano will discuss what they know of their father's wartime experiences, and what they discovered of their father's story from the time capsule

Musical | The Comedy of Errors: A Musical Adaptation of Shakespeare's Play


Conceived by director Rebecca Martinez and composer Julian Mesri, a member of The Public Theater's 2022-23 Emerging Writers Group, this new adaptation rigorously embraces music from all over Latin America in this tale of separation and joyous reunion. With songs in English and Spanish, this new musical adaptation brings an energetic vibe to this age-old tale of two sets of twins separated by stormy seas as they overcome a baffling case of mistaken identity--and the mayhem and hilarious confusion that follows.
