Imperfect Societies

Imperfect Societies
Description:

Featuring film and photography, Imperfect Societies probes themes of history, trauma, and nationhood set within the trope of science fiction. In Icarus 13: The First Journey to the Sun, Kiluanji Kia Henda plunges viewers into parallel traditions at pivotal movements in Angolan history, from the politics of Marxism-Leninism to the practice of witchcraft, as told within sci-fi narratives of the Cold War. Henda employs a sense of humor and criticality in his videos and photography, which often investigates themes of identity, politics, and perceptions of post-colonialism and modernism in Africa. Vietnamese-born artist Tuan Andrew Nguyen’s work questions the individual’s relationship to history, nationhood, and cultural displacement. In Nguyen’s short film The Island, shot on the Malaysian island Pulau Bidong (once the largest and longest-operating refugee camp after the Vietnam War that also housed Nguyen and his family) we encounter a dystopian future focused on the last two people on earth.

Artist Reception: Friday, February 22, 5-8 p.m.

Imperfect Societies is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. Tuan Andrew Nguyen’s The Island courtesy for the artist and James Cohan, New York.

Adorned: Hairstyles of an Ancient Dynasty

Adorned: Hairstyles of an Ancient Dynasty
Description:

Barbara Zucker debut’s her new work, Adorned: Hairstyles of an Ancient Dynasty, featuring several black-and-white paintings and an installation of acrylic abstractions inspired by the stylized hairstyles of Tang dynasty tomb figures. Zucker is fascinated by the complex ways in which hair has been used by cultures to convey class, status, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and power throughout the world. Since the 1990s, the artist has explored the subject of hair in her sculpture – how it is shaped, removed, or adorned. In Adorned: Hairstyles of an Ancient Dynasty, Zucker transforms seemingly abstract forms into ironic, often humorous, observations on gender and culture.

Artist Reception: Friday, February 22, 5-8 p.m.

Time: 2/22/19 5:00pm - 6/9/19 5:00pm

Rebecca Weisman: Skin Ego

Rebecca Weisman: Skin Ego
Description:

Artist Reception: Friday, February 22, 5-8 p.m.

Rebecca Weisman examines subconscious and psychological spaces of identity. The artist combines video, sound, sculpture, and photography to create a large-scale, immersive installation. Skin Ego is comprised of several narrative threads that weave a story about the body’s corporeal nature. A central component of Skin Ego is the large-scale, eight by twenty foot sculptural recreation of a beached whale that visitors can enter and explore. Incorporating film and performance within her surreal environment, the artist spins a mysterious narrative between the fisherman and whale that expresses the nature of our impermanence.

Project Vermont is a new series dedicated to experimentation by providing a setting for contemporary Vermont artists to push their artistic practice while creating new work. Presenting visual, performance, and interdisciplinary exploration from emerging to established artists, Project Vermont supports artists’ exploration of new ideas and challenges, enables innovation, and creates engagement between audience and artist.

Rebecca Weisman’s Skin Ego is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
