Enter The Fadolín
Lev Ljova Zhurbin

Enter The Fadolín is a new solo performance and the Patreon-supported development of the new repertoire that explores the fadolín, which is a unique string instrument encompassing the full range of the violin, viola, and most of the cello. The new repertoire is written for the fadolín specifically and could be performed live, unamplified, and without loopers or pre-records. Most of the works are written by the musician Lev Lejova Zhurbin himself. Some works by J.S. Bach and several African-American spirituals will also be performed. This new repertoire has been shown on social media, on-street busking, and at house concerts during the pandemic.

Current exhibitions
Do write [right] to me
Uncool Artist

Uncool Artist has invited its associated artists to think about the idea of remote communication, asking questions, and proposing action. In this sense, the exhibition Do write [right] to me involves reactivating the Mail Art network that was of utmost importance during the 60s and 70s in Latin America. The exhibition also parallels the present times calling into question the sense of what is remote, of isolation, the use of technology to maintain human connection, and its threats to democracy.

Serenity and Struggle
Dana-Marie Bullock

As the title of the show implies, Serenity and Struggle captures the juxtaposition of the states of tranquillity/inner peace and chaos/conflict. Although these states are opposite in nature, we can experience both multiple times within a very brief period of time. Within the context of social justice or the lack thereof, each abstract painting focuses on one of these two states through the lens of recent societal events.

Absence of Touch
Jordan Barker

The sensation of touch is paramount to the human experience. I became acutely aware of this when the absence and variety of touch that I was used to experiencing had been abruptly stripped from my life during the pandemic. I got inspired to create my art to reintroduce these textures and sensations back into my life and provide me with a sense of presence and calm amidst what felt like quiet chaos. The pieces I created were a practice in mindfulness that I couldn’t achieve in any other way during this long period of isolation.

Current Work
Mark Bouthilette

Current Work is a solo exhibition by Artist Mark Bouthilette. Mark Bouthilette's work looks to explore the relationship between the inner and outer worlds. The work is a two-part process. By working quickly in wet paint, he's able to dive into the subconscious, and create a snap shot of that moment with all its inherent spiritual energy. Once the paint has dried - he unearths the raw marks by sanding through the myriad layers of paint much in the same way an archeologist brushes dust from a found object at an excavation site. What's left is the physical evidence of past energy and a distinct connection between the meta-physical and the physical universe.

Inlé Lake
Sarah Philouze

In 2019, Sarah Philouze had the chance to travel across Myanmar and she fell in love with a place called Inlé Lake. The lake is a giant floating garden where artisans cultivate lotus flowers for weaving, surrounded by houses on stilt. Philouze remarked that it is the most beautiful and peaceful place she has ever visited. She spent hours observing and drawing the lotus flowers and visiting the weaving workshops. Back at work in her studio in New York, Sarah explored the lotus shapes with different materials. She created a floating installation of 100 lotus flowers woven on wood.

Peeling Back the Layers
Francine Hsu Davis

Peeling Back the Layers is the first in a series of paintings created during the pandemic by artist Francine Hsu Davis. Francine's paintings previously focused on memory and history, expressed through heavily layered paintings.  With our present experiences of lockdowns, this concept of the building-up of layers has shifted to the peeling back of layers.  There is a wide array of experiences during quarantine, but for many, the shift in home life is most significant: for some, the current experience is isolation, while for others it is overwhelming proximity with the same people day in and day out.

Fire and Ice
Art Students League

For Fire and Ice, the latest edition of The League’s Exhibition Outreach program, League artists were asked to explore the difference between fire’s glow and frost’s glitter. At Fire and Ice, viewers will walk through a vault of dreams and memories of the season, sentineled by its warmest and coldest imagery. A network of steel rods creates a sculpture of fire so dimensional that its shadow becomes a plume of smoke over its form. Translucent washes and thick strokes of blue and white create distinctive scenes of snow.
