Shagha Ariannia: Who Sings the Nation-State?
March 18 - June 24

Exploring questions of citizenship, national belonging, and the fantasy of immigration through drawings, paintings and a video installation, itself part performance and part storytelling, this exhibition borrows its title from the book by cultural critics Judith Butler and Gayatri Spivak to comment on the complex landscape of nationhood.

April 22 - July 22

Drawing from the hemispheric context of the Americas, and broad questions of civilization and culture, this exhibition presents recent works by artists from the United States and Latin America grappling with continued questions of colonialism and postcolonialism in an effort to locate “place” in contemporary society.
