Joe Nanashe : Composition in White and Green (a small plot of land)
May 22 - Jul 20 2019 - Last day
The all-consuming installation is a play on the classic American structure of a picket fence and green lawn inside a courtyard. This timely installation investigates the current climate of American protectionism. Using the classic symbol of the American suburb, the white picket fence symbolizes the protection of an aspiration that has long been forgotten and turned into a much sinister symbol. Joe Nanashe has turned the AstroTurf lawn into an inaccessible cube and allows the viewer a glimpse of a non-functioning fence and garden resting on its side. Opening Reception: Wed, May 22, 6-8pm.
Muscle Memory
Jun 20 - Aug 02 2019 - 13 days left
Home to both sinew and synapse, Muscle Memory is a group exhibition featuring the work of recent MFA graduates from the University of Connecticut. Featuring the work by Jeanne Ciravolo, Melanie Klimjack, Luke Seward, and River Soma. This exhibition animates our studies of the body as performed through collection, accumulation, gesture and assemblage. By means of painting , sculpture, and video, each artist extends their approach, arriving at a delivery that is both in and of the body. Whether the work is standing on two feet, hanging by its own weight, or emitting a soft glow, its presence materializes tender gestures.
