luxta
Arantxa Araujo

​lutxa is an immersive, socially-engaged, participatory, multimedia performance that seeks to reconnect with one's self, and create a healthy cycle of interconnectedness, to understand our own self and our effect on our environment/others. It is an experimental practice tempting enlightenment and diminishing unnecessary suffering by recognizing (self-awareness) and fighting (lucha=lutxa) our reactive desires.

Victim Shame, Body Blame
Christy E. O'Connor

Victim Shame, Body Blame is an analysis of American rape culture, toxic masculinity and the ever lasting effects our patriarchal society has had on both men and women, as we continue to blame and shame the victims of sexual violence, as perpetrators are rendered free from culpability. This body of work is an analysis on the amalgamation of victim shaming tropes that men and women are taught throughout their lives, both passively and actively, through social norms, pop culture, our educational and legal systems, religious establishments, and familial influences and upbringing.

Rebels I Know
Boris Torres

Rebels I Know exists in a queer time and space. Queer time, distinct from queer identity, is a way to move beyond the to-do lists and everyday hustle to connect more deeply to parts of ourselves in others.

There Is Too Much to Discuss
Lee Russell Holin

As a lifelong New Yorker and street artist for over a decade, Lee Holin has been able to witness first-hand the rapidly shifting landscape and expedited gentrification occurring in every usable corner of post-9/11 Manhattan and its surrounding boroughs. From SoHo to Brownsville, spaces once adorned with graffiti and urban art representing the voice of a neighborhood began to vanish, and along with them the inhabitants who could no longer afford to live there.

Luck
A Group Show

The winds of fortune create alignments and synchronicity beyond our ability to explain. Luck is about the meeting of chance & necessity. An improbable occurrence, positive or negative, luck is the recognition of events that can not be reduced to reason. We each inherit curses and receive blessings. Forever reframing the mystery of our unfolding dates, we create stories and superstitions, practice rituals and cast spells. And yet, the design remains elusive.

Sonic Sunlight
Sasha vom Dorp

Vom Dorp brings you evidence of a minute history, in which no instance is petty and every instant too complex to perceive in its entirety. A moment is all time, an atom the universe. These photographs aim to capture the beauty and turmoil that occurs inside the most pedestrian events. Sunlight bounces on water, sound waves march toward oblivion.

Odyssey
Natalia Wróbel

In her paintings, Natalia Wróbel creates portals into liminal realms beyond our physical world.  Wróbel references ancient architecture, elements from nature, musical harmony and dissonance, neural networks, and mindfulness philosophy to elicit imagined, meditative pseudo-landscapes.

9 Months 2 Seasons
Myke Karlowski

Myke Karlowski’s work focuses on the passage of time and his own experiences with time-space synesthesia. The palette throughout the work translates moments and units of time into color. Routine layering and manipulation of the painting surface further exposes each piece to time through accumulation and erosion. Each painting is a journal of real and personal events and an artifact reflecting its own history of development.

New Paintings
David Bender

The complex interconnectedness of everything. It's a pretty grandiose statement, but it's really just another way of saying that we are all connected; made from the same stuff that formed our Sun, Earth and the rest of the universe. The group of paintings that will be exhibited are about his presence in the universe.
