Kenneth Tam: The Glass Ceiling (Gallery Exhibition)

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Heimbold Gallery

Open to the public

Kenneth Tam is a Brooklyn-based artist born in Queens, NY. His work often takes the form of video and sculpture and it's interested in reimagining the spaces and rituals that inform ideas about the male body and its performance. The work looks at ways in which hegemonic and normative forms of male subjectivity can be rearticulated to reveal spaces of intimacy vulnerability and even loss.

Julie Abraham: Working Paper (Gallery Exhibition)

Barbara Walters Gallery

Open to the public

J.L. Abraham works by hand (printing and painting), works on paper (French sheets, Japanese rolls, machine made in America), and works through aggregation (of blocks, colors, methods, sheets). Though she often multiplies, she rarely duplicates.

Stories discussed will include Angela Carter's "The Fall-River Axe Murders," Susan Glaspell's "A Jury of Her Peers," Kate Chopin's "The Story of an Hour," and Nancy Hale's "The Earliest Dreams."
