Upcoming Exhibitions

R. Luke DuBois--Now
exhibition November 7, 2015 - February 28, 2016

 

R. Luke DuBois—Now is the first solo museum exhibition for an artist whose work defies categorization. Over the last decade, New York-based DuBois has produced a prodigious body of work ranging from musical composition and collaborative performance to large-scale public installations, film, and generative computer works. This survey demonstrates that DuBois operates at the intersections of the visual, the performative, and the time-based.

 

Sandow Birk: American Qur'an
exhibition November 7, 2015 - February 28, 2016

 

Painter Sandow Birk (b. 1962) has developed a specialty of applying the vision and scope of history painting to the examination of issues that possess contemporary relevance. Recently, Birk has spent nine years completing his most ambitious project to date, American Qur’an. In this series, he hand-transcribes and illustrates every verse of the  holy book of Islam in a manner that would emphasize how the Qur’an might be more meaningful to Western audiences.

 

marilyn minter: pretty/dirty
exhibition April 2 - July 10, 2016

For over three decades Marilyn Minter has produced lush paintings, photographs, and videos that vividly manifest our culture’s complex and contradictory emotions around the feminine body and beauty. From the oversized paintings of makeup-laden lips and eyes to soiled designer shoes, Minter’s work brings into sharp, critical focus the power of desire. As an artist Minter has always made seductive visual statements that demand our attention while never shirking her equally crucial roles as provocateur, critic, and humorist.
