Gallery Talk | The Corrections Online 3D: Curatorial Tour (online)


Curator Sam Fein gives a 3D tour and discussion of the exhibition.   The Troubled Teen Industry (TTI) is a multibillion dollar industry claiming to modify the socially undesirable behavior of adolescents. The "delinquent" behavior used to justify TTI placement (ie "promiscuity", "losing temper", "sexual confusion") reflects our country?s legacy of institutionalizing female bodies for subverting traditional gender expectations. Although widespread abuse and death within TTI programs have been reported for decades, the industry remains largely unknown to the public and almost entirely unregulated. It is only recently, through survivor-led action, that the world is starting to pay attention. The Corrections presents a group of female artists who are TTI survivors-turned-activists. Through painting, digital media, installation, and personal ephemera such as journals and letters, these artists draw upon their first-hand experiences to expose the inner workings of this shadowy industry. Viewed collectively they share overarching themes: community dislocation, identity erasure, and the struggle to reintegrate in normative society after a period of prolonged captivity.

When nonbinary athlete Jo Wagner is kicked off the high school wrestling team for being on testosterone, rival MJ McKinnon comes up with a plan to stage a guerrilla final match. Flanked by new local radio DJs Ray & Jay, and factually bolstered by biology teacher Tom Rodgers, the event grows in scope, joy, imagination, and also complications. In a world structurally designed around ideas of binary gender and sex, what would it mean to not only protect trans-nonbinary kids, but to also let them thrive? Written by Sam Mueller.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: New Work / Current & Cloth


New Work Christine Mottau’s new body of abstract oil paintings, made in 2022 and 2023, are based on chakra meditation theory. The show represents a turn inward and are a highly personal exploration of the imagery envisioned through practicing meditation. The paintings record a visual expression of the transportive experience–a balancing of the physical, emotional, and spiritual self. Current & Cloth Nancy Quin’s interest in the versatility of steel guides her explorations in sculpture and abstraction. In this exhibition, her plasma-cut pieces accentuate the softer side of steel and their fluidity provides a counterpoint to the welded work. Accent pieces in clay and laser-cut acrylic complete the overarching theme of work created through processes requiring electric current.

Book Discussion | 2 New Cookbooks: The Cook You Want to Be / Korean American


Andy Baraghani and Eric Kim discuss their spectacular cookbook debuts, what they're cooking these days, and what comes next. Andy Baraghani is a cook, food writer, video personality, and the author of The Cook You Want to Be. Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Andy grew up watching a lot of cooking shows on PBS while learning to cook at home under the careful supervision of his mother (and with the help of a footstool). His experiences at the legendary Chez Panisse and Estela cemented his love for cooking, and his bold, highly achievable flavors became his signature cooking style during his time as a food editor at Bon Appétit. Andy lives in New York City with his extensive mortar and pestle collection. Eric KIm is a New York Times staff writer and essayist born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. His debut cookbook, Korean American: Food That Tastes Like Home was an instant bestseller. A former digital manager for the Food Network, contributing editor for Saveur magazine and senior editor for Food52 (where he amassed a devoted readership for his "Table for One" column), he now hosts regular videos on NYT Cooking's YouTube channel and writes a monthly column for The New York Times Magazine.

Opening Reception | Aglaé Bassens: Downtime


Aglaé Bassens is interested in the overlap of the private experience with the communal one. While her paintings stem from her own memories, the imagery feels approximate enough to belong to anyone else’s recollections. Calling attention to the overlooked and the everyday, each work begins with a photograph, either her own or found. Bassens siphons her personal memories, loading each image with feeling. At the same time, she edits and omits from each image, allowing it to be broad enough for anyone to identify with. Through her signature asymmetrical cropping and atmospheric treatment, she invites viewers to recognize something of their own in each painting.

Opening Reception | Valdir Cruz: Brazilian Landscapes


For more than four decades photographer Valdir Cruz has been exploring and documenting the landscape and people of Brazil. As did Gaugin’s famous painting, these photographs pose fundamental questions: Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? The magnetic center of Cruz’s work is Brazil’s southern Paraná state, where the vast network of tributaries and waterfalls erases the boundaries between Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. Especially in Iguaçu, with its gigantic waterfalls, one has the sense of the earth itself in constant motion. Water seems to come from every corner of the forest, not merely from the rivers that meet there. Water is a force.

Book Discussion | The Book of Eve: Her Version of Genesis


What if everything they've told us about the Garden of Eden was wrong? Faced with what appears to be an apocryphal manuscript containing ten books and 91 chapters, Eve decides to tell her version of the story of Genesis: she was not created from Adam's rib, nor is it correct that she was expelled for taking the apple from the serpent; the story of Abel and Cain isn't true, neither are those of the Flood and the Tower of Babel... In brilliant prose, Carmen Boullosa offers a twist on the Book of Genesis that dismantles patriarchy and rebuilds our understanding of the world--from the origin of gastronomy, to the domestication of animals, to the cultivation of land and pleasure--all through the feminine gaze. Based on this exploration, at times both joyful and painful, The Book of Eve takes a tour through the stories we've been told since childhood, which have helped to foster (and cement) the absurd idea that woman is the companion, complement, and even accessory to man, opening the door to criminal violence against women. Boullosa refutes this entrenched, dangerous perspective in her foundational and brazen feminist novel.

Film | CANCELLED: Hell's Kitchen Chronicle (1983): documentary


The film looks at the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood's many-sided struggle to save itself from becoming a "disposable community" as soaring rents and landlords force out longtime residents and small businesses. The inner life of this urban environment is seen through a series of human encounters, among them an aging opera singer's rooftop swan song, a homeless woman's observation of life, an ex-vaudeville performer's last act, and a street gang's violent iconography. Directors: Maren and Reed Erskine Registration required.
