November 17 - December 18, 2016

The exhibition Overlap: Life Tapestries curated by Vida Sabbaghi includes photos, fabric collage, clothing, video, paintings, and  drawings. The artists - Alice Hope, Sascha Mallon, Michela Martello, Shari Weschler Rubeck, Bastienne Schmidt, Linda Stein, Martha Wilson, and Kumi Yamashita - imaginatively recreate the tapestry of their lives to diversify the narrative surrounding women and the art they produce, while mapping relationships between personal and public life. Women must continually tell their stories about the ways gender, race, and class discrimination overlap and intersect, and how this defines their lives.

Opening Reception: Thursday, November 17th, 6-8pm
Post Reception Conversation: Thursday, November 17th, 8-9pm
DUMBO Art Walk: Thursday, December 1st, 6-8pm
