2nd Floor: Gohar Dashti: Iran Untitled and Stateless
Exhibition dates: January 2nd – June 1st, 2016
Gohar Dashti | From “Stateless” Series | 80 × 120 cm | Archival Digital Pigment Print | 2014-2015
Featuring 16 images from Iran, Untitled 2013 and Stateless 2014/ 2015, as well as the video, Slow decay, Dashti’s Selected Works are set in Iran, but the ideas therein transcend geography. By exploring the influence of history in a manner more squarely focused on the aesthetic rather than the political, the images underscore human experience. In establishing this common denominator, the images serve as a potential gateway to a greater understanding of the impact of history on contemporary society and of Iranian culture.
3rd Floor: Sandra Gottlieb: Earth and Water
Exhibition dates: January 2 – March 25, 2016
Opening reception and artist lecture: February 5, 2016 | 6-8 PM
Sandra Gottlieb | Horizontal No.20 | Archival Digital Pigment Print | 2014-2015
Sandra Gottlieb has created a striking series of photographs of the skies and waters of the Atlantic Ocean. With a keen eye for the fleeting phenomena of clouds and light, she has created beautiful large-scale images that range from the abstract, to the painterly, to the highly dramatic. Her poetic work conveys the sense of impermanence in both nature and in human existence.
Please join us from 6-8 p.m. on February 5th for the opening of Sandra Gottlieb: Earth and Water, an exploration of the skies and waters along the east coast of the United States. Gottlieb will discuss the aesthetic, poetic, metaphysical, and environmental implications of her work from 7-8 p.m. The exhibition runs through March 25, 2015.
