Cutting the Stone
Jun 27 - Aug 03 2019 - 17 days left
This show began with Hieronymus Bosch’s painting titled Cutting the Stone, or The Extraction of the Stone of Madness or The Cure of Folly. Against the backdrop of a bucolic summer landscape, the painting depicts a sinister scene in which a ‘surgeon’ wearing an upside-down funnel on his head extracts an object from the skull of a patient. Instead of the stone, what the doctor removes is the bulb of a waterlily, possibly an allusion to lust. Rey Akdogan, Lutz Bacher, Jenna Bliss, Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel, Barbara Chase-Riboud, Fernand Deligny, Melvin Edwards, Tishan Hsu, Park McArthur, Nour Mobarak, Jill Mulleady, Jean Painlevé, Jackie Wang, Cathy Wilkes. Organizers: Alex Fleming, Anya Komar. Opening Reception: Thu, Jun 27, 6-8pm.
