Mark your calendars for the grand opening of three captivating exhibitions on Tuesday, Jan. 16:
- No Justice Without Love: A group exhibition by artists, activists, and allied donors that make up the Art for Justice Fund (A4J) community and beyond, adapted from its original presentation at The Ford Foundation in 2023.
- Light at the End of the Tunnel: Two recent works by New York-based artist, Naeem Mohaiemen. Crafted, conceived, and brought to life amidst the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic.
- Maypole: Take No Prisoners: Cleveland-born artist Nancy Spero’s contribution to the Fifty-Second Venice Biennale, including her large-scale sculpture of a maypole as a monument to violence, national culpability, and complicity.
Join us for an opening reception on Thursday, Jan. 18th, from 4 - 6 p.m., with special guest Lisa Kim, Director of the Ford Foundation Gallery.
Due to overwhelming popularity, Christine Sun Kim’s striking mural, “Turning Clock”, will remain in Kenyon’s Odin Hall through June 2024. Additionally, we’re extending Beverly Buchanan’s The Idea Was to Capture Something Closely Related to a Feeling through April 2024. Buchanan was a parasitologist, health educator, and artist; her interdisciplinary perspective offers excellent insight into the crossover between art and public health.
Finally, we hope you’ll join us at The Annex in downtown Mount Vernon this spring to explore the art of printmaking through the creative perspective of internationally recognized artist Chitra Ganesh. Ganesh’s work, which spans drawing, digital collages, film, and wall murals and often features Hindu and Buddhist iconography, seeks to reconcile the absence of representations of femininity, sexuality, and power in artistic and literary traditions.
