Radical Kingdoms

Radical Kingdoms

In the exhibition, Radical Kingdoms, contemporary works are juxtaposed with early practitioners’ works, such as John James Audubon’s The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, and lesser-known artists of the time, such as J. Sowerby, Mary Peart, and Georg Dionysius Ehret, in order to highlight artistic similarities and formal shifts away from traditional modes of presentation.

Recurrence

Recurrence

Repetition has been used as a concept in many forms of intellectual endeavor, from Freud’s Repetition Compulsion theory to Gestalt’s grouping principle. The arts have been no less fascinated with ideas of repetition, as heard in Bach’s Goldberg Variations or seen in Eva Hesse’s and Sol LeWitt’s sculptural works. In the exhibition Recurrence, artists Kira Nam Greene, Juan Hinojosa, Simone Meltesen, Karen Schiff, Sam Vernon, and Rachael Wren delve into the multitude of ideas surrounding repetition in the visual arts and how these different ideas are represented visually.

Ion Codrescu: Haiga Painting

Ion Codrescu: Haiga Painting

Haiga is a unique genre of art, which began in Japan, combining painting, poetry (haiku), and calligraphy. “Composing a haiga painting is a way to emphasize the power and the content of haiku poetry because each word has the force of a brush stroke. To juxtapose poetry and painting in the same space is a challenge for any artist. Both for painting and poetry we need harmony, contrast, rhythm, accents, ideas, emotion, and expressiveness.”

Tenses by Walter Hatke

Tenses by Walter Hatke

This exhibition touches on developments in my work over a span of 25 years. It is not a retrospective in the usual sense of the word because most of the work was completed in the last three years, and I continue to produce art, sometimes reconfiguring earlier compositions. Time takes on a meaning that differs from standard intervals. Tenses constantly shift.

In the Forest: Aliene de Souza Howell

As Howell writes, “[her] work examines our interactions with each other, the objects we use, and the natural world. This is done through humor, personal stories, imagination, and conscious observation of how we affect our environment. By focusing on a more allegorical interpretation, it provides space for a more open and personal dialogue; a dialogue between beauty and metaphor, behavior and craft.”
