Paved Over and Other Stories, 2016


April 21 - May 22, 2016

For those who remember and keep hope, what has been destroyed, martyred or cast into oblivion nonetheless resurface in monuments that are, themselves, expressions of forgetting and despair. The works included in Paved Over and Other Stories draw on a history of sacred painting and architecture, entangled with modern excesses in power and politics. They attempt to give body to that which has been reduced to surface.

Opening Reception: Thursday April 21st, 6-8pm (artist talk at 7:30pm)
DUMBO Art Walk: Thursday May 5th, 6-8pm
