Opening Reception | Mind the Gap: Black-and-White Photographs


Joshua Lutz’s third solo show at the gallery points to the physical and psychological gap one confronts in daily life. It is a reference to the gap between thoughts as well as the gap between comprehension and confusion. Caught between thinking something is one thing and the reality of what it actually is, Mind the Gap functions as a reminder of the effort needed to let go of the stories we tell ourselves and to rest for a brief moment in the here and now. Joshua Lutz has received many prestigious awards and grants, including The Aaron Siskind Fellowship; The Tierney Fellowship; and the Hudson Year Fellowship. Lutz has exhibited his work internationally in numerous shows over the past fifteen years.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Stuart Davis / Lee Krasner


Lines Thicken: Stuart Davis in Black and White is an exhibition of black and white paintings and works on paper by Stuart Davis (1892-1964). As Barbara Haskell notes in the catalog for the Whitney Museum of American Art’s 2016 Davis exhibition, “Stuart Davis has been called one of the greatest painters of the twentieth century and the best American artist of his generation.” Mural Studies brings together eight of Lee Krasner’s rarely exhibited small-scale, gouache-on-paper studies for an unrealized Works Progress Administration mural painting. Created in 1940 (the same year Krasner produced, in her own words, her “first abstract work”) the gouaches investigate varying configurations of geometric and biomorphic forms alongside linear elements reminiscent of Jean Arp and Joan Miró.

Opening Reception | Trade Winds: Hawai'i in Photographs


A solo exhibition of the New York-based photographer Yojiro Imasaka.   Developed over several sojourns on the island of O'ahu, Imasaka's newest series captures a vision of Hawai'i far removed from its postcard-perfect beaches. Instead, his photographs transport us to an overgrown landscape, where the crispness of each leaf, frond, and branch is sporadically disrupted by moments of blurry focus, a result of the wind that inhabits the forest.These "trade winds" gently course through every corner of the island all year round, affecting its temperature, air quality, evenocean currents by their presence or absence. Imasaka reflects.

Emilie Stark-Menneg's paintings are imbued with an economical splendor stemming from the heightened sensuality of her opulent colors and wry imagery. Combining airbrush, hard-edge, and post-Photoshop painting techniques that push the viewers' focus from foreground to background and back again, Stark-Menneg’s figures lyrically bleed into the environment as much as the environment stains them-- creating a symbiotic relationship where hierarchies are confused and defused.

Film | Tour Without End (2018): Lives of Indie Rockers


Enter the colorful and conscientious world of American independent rock musicians of the '90's through now, who sought (and still seek) to fuse musical expression with political action, formal experimentation, and other dialectically rigorous endeavors. The result is strikingly unique - a documentary and narrative hybrid comedy that utilizes the subjects as non-actors playing themselves in this exploration of identity, representation, and the arts. Director: Laura Parnes 92 min. Followed by a conversation between Parnes, writer and musician Johanna Fateman and film critic Amy Taubin.

Author Reading | Terrorist Assemblages Ten Years On in the Time of Trump


Ten years on, Jasbir Puar’s pathbreaking Terrorist Assemblages remains one of the most influential queer theory texts and continues influencing activism and scholarship. Puar argues that configurations of sexuality, race, gender, class, and ethnicity are realigning into what Puar calls homonationalism—a fusing of homosexuality to U.S. imperialist politics that has continued into the time of Trump. Puar will be on hand to discuss the book with leading scholars and celebrate its tenth anniversary reissue.

Performance | Antigone in Ferguson: Sophocles and Choral Music


Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, Missouri. Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries and composed by Phil Woodmore, the project fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of excerpts from Sophocles’s Greek tragedy with live choral music performed by a choir of activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions on race and social justice, the core component of the event. This multifaceted production will offer a glimpse not only into the effects of the tragedy in Brown’s local community, but also the trauma of police violence and racial injustice in communities of color in New York and across the nation. Local stakeholders and community leaders will participate as panelists, assisting in opening up dialogues with audiences. These guided discussions, which aim to promote healing and bridge the growing divide between law enforcement and local communities, will focus on the impact of racialized violence against communities of color, and the legacies of the tragic deaths of Michael Brown, as well as Eric Garner, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Saheed Vassell, and numerous other victims. The presentation will feature a rotating roster of acclaimed actors, including Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), who will reprise the role she portrayed in the premiere of Antigone in Ferguson presented on the stage of Michael Brown’s high school in Ferguson in 2016. Other cast members include: Paul Giamatti (Billions), Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Adepero Oduye (12 Years a Slave), Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). Each week will feature a different group of actors. Tuesdays through Saturdays, September 13-October 13, 2018.
