Magali Duzant presents a new exhibition, What Is It, Then, Between Us, at BRIC Arts Media. Her installation, according to BRIC, In her installation, "illuminates the power of gesture to serve as a universal language. The text, an American Sign Language translation of an excerpt from Walt Whitman’s poem Crossing Brooklyn Ferry, underscores the possibility of human connection through shared experience. To translate the poem, Duzant created an archive of hands using different hands for each letter, many of them local artists who were first time signers. As a result, each hand forms a different version of the letter it portrays, personalizing the interpretations of the universal gestures."
The exhibition is on view now!
Jade Doskow's widely lauded World's Fairs photos have landed in the Hudson Valley at Westchester Community College. Covering ten years of work and research, this body of work has reached numerous press outlets and galleries, and it comprises her recent book, Lost Utopias.
According to the press release, " In Doskow’s photographs the resulting images illustrate sites that run the gamut from iconic to abandoned, from functional to strangely repurposed—including such structures as the Space Needle, Eiffel Tower, and New York State Pavilion—positing complex questions as to the nature of what we choose to preserve or discard within our shared urban spaces."
The exhibition, Jade Doskow’s World Fairs, is open to the public until December 22, 2017.
