Small-town librarian Meredith Stafford and her husband Beau are losing the struggle for the perfect lawn to weeds and moles, so Meredith decides to "go wild", replacing their decimated lawn with a "natural" landscape. When she's fined for violating a local lawn ordinance, she decides to challenge the ordinance in court. While she loses the case, she becomes a social media sensation, launching her on a bizarre journey that shakes her faith in America as a bastion of freedom, democracy, and the rule of law.

Play | A Double Bill of Shows by New and Old Playwrights


Two plays in one night! Sun: Dedicated to Malcolm X by Adrienne Kennedy and Blurring Shine by Zakiyyah Alexander. Adrienne Kennedy is one of America's greatest living playwrights, making her Broadway debut this fall with Ohio State Murders. Her fiercely individual and visionary work has been produced on stages around the world for over 50 years. Sun: Dedicated to Malcolm X was first produced in London during the late sixties and is an impassioned, sorrowful reverie about loss, frustration, and hope. The works of Zakiyyah Alexander have been produced at theatres across the United States and celebrated with numerous awards. Blurring Shine is her trenchant dissection of the intersection between hip-hop culture and corporate profits, as seen through the eyes of two half brothers at opposite ends of the class system in America. This double bill is directed by Jim Furlong

Opening Reception | Mariupol: Documenting Russian Savagery in Ukraine


An exhibition of award-winning photographs and video by Evgeniy Maloletka and Mstyslav Chernov (AP) from the first days Russia invaded Ukraine this year. There were no funerals. No memorials. No public gatherings to mourn those killed by Russia's relentless attacks on the port city of Mariupol that became a symbol of Ukraine's ferocious resistance. The mass grave trenches told the story of a city under siege. The world would have seen none of this, would have seen next to nothing at all from Mariupol as a city under siege, if it wasn't for Mstyslav Chernov and Evgeniy Maloletka, the associated Press team who race into the city when the invasion began and stayed long after it had become one of the most dangerous places on Earth. For more than two weeks, they were the only international media in the city, and the only journalists able to transmit video and still photos to the outside world. Moscow hated their work. The Russian embassy in London tweeted images of AP photos with the word "Fake" over them in red text. A top Russian diplomat held up copies of photos from the maternity hospital at a U.N. Security Council meeting, insisting they were phony. But their photographs and the people who they met speak to what happened in Mariupol.

Opening Reception | Anselm Kiefer: Exodus


Anselm Kiefer’s monumental body of work represents a microcosm of collective memory, visually encapsulating a broad range of cultural, literary, and philosophical allusions—from the Old and New Testaments, Kabbalah mysticism, Norse mythology and Wagner’s Ring Cycle to the poetry of Ingeborg Bachmann and Paul Celan.

Opening Reception | Isabelle Albuquerque: Orgy for Ten People in One Body


Isabelle Albuquerque is a sculptor who explores emergent systems of intrapersonal communion, collective identity, transhumanism, plurality, love, loss, memory and the emanation of desire. The exhibition brings together for the first time her complete series of ten headless figurative sculptures created between 2019 and 2022. In this work, the artist uses her own body and transmutes it across multiple forms and material languages. With a background in performance, Albuquerque is interested in materials like cast bronze and melting wax that encode a precise moment in time, making something once fleeting more eternal.

Opening Reception | Ryan Wilde: Circus of Solitude


In time for the holiday season, Ryan Wilde’s show mimics the decked out windows of Fifth Avenue and playfully poking fun at the long American tradition of consumerism as a holiday pastime, particularly in New York City. Wilde’s circus, however, presents a different tone: a more melancholy, reflective experience that delves into the theatricality of sartorial identity; and explores the notion of the artist as performer, using a number of art historical references throughout this body of work.
