Upcoming exhibitions


Jesse Hlebo

When a vacationing Afghani Jihadi, a first generation Mexican-American border patrol officer, and a stoned, 12 year old, native New Yorker simultaneously update their Facebook status to "Why is Wikipedia blacked out?" on the same make of cell phone over free Starbucks WiFi, you know the apocalypse is already here. Jesse Hlebo's solo exhibition, Punitive Embers, is an experiment in crisis participation and civil suicide. How are we supposed to learn about the apocalypse when the internet is down?


Jenny Holzer

Jenny Holzer, MONEY CREATES TASTE, consists of a single silver spoon. In a time where economics are eclipsing art's more complex functions, this simple object asks not simply how is taste formed, but who is given the privilege to articulate taste?
