Andrew Ross: Buildings on a Mushroom-Shaped Island

Andrew Ross: Buildings on a Mushroom-Shaped Island

November 12, 2020 – February 14, 2021

Andrew Ross is a visual artist who centers his work around failing. signifiers and decontextualized images. His practice questions the steadfastness of caricatures, symbols, and products of mass distribution on a runaway timescale of plastic and other non-biodegradable substrates. Ross makes sculpture, drawings and digital prints in homage to the ingenuity of diaspora communities in reframing and repurposing fragments of the post-colonial landscape. He uses reverse engineering as a framework to drive his studio, clashing technologies associated with specific products with seemingly unrelated imagery or forms. Ross’s works are uncanny and familiar although their references are heavily abstracted and deconstructed.

Gary Burnley: Facing History

Gary Burnley: Facing History

September 14 – October 18, 2020

Gary Burnley’s work in Facing History explores dialogues between standard, but often opposing, representations of beauty, desire, influence and identity. Examining meaning through contrast, the physical collages and stereographic devices Burnley creates encourage dissociated images to merge and consolidate in the eye and mind of the viewer. Resulting in a union of optical rivalries, his amalgamations imagine strange bedfellows congruent for moments in time, space and reason.

Kenneth Tam: Glass Ceiling

Kenneth Tam: Glass Ceiling

January 21 – February 23

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.

Tishan Hsu: Selected Works

Tishan Hsu: Selected Works

November 12 - December 8, 2019 

Tishan Hsu is an artist whose practice has attempted to convey an embodied technology. Hsu’s interest in technology has not been in the use of a particular apparatus but the perception of a technological affect. His work has included paintings, digital media projections and sculpture.

Ann Toebbe: Swing State

Ann Toebbe: Swing State

September 10 - October 13, 2019

How much of our lives, past and present, have we imbued in the spaces we live in? In Swing State, Ann Toebbe takes a personal look at this question from capturing her relatives’ midwestern homes to her mother’s collection of German Hummels. Swing states are in constant flux, which is a feeling Toebbe relates to as she enters the middle of her life. Where do we go from here and where have we been?
