February 27 - March 5: Lucy Lippard
Project on Display: DOUBLETAKE
Exhibition opening and public reception Friday, February 27, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. with artist talk at 7:00 p.m., followed by a book signing of Undermining.
"I'm obsessed with too many disasters at the moment, local and global, but for this series I've zeroed in on outrage over police murders of Black boys and men (Hands Up, Don't Shoot; Black Lives Matter; I Can't Breathe....) and the longer-term impacts of climate change on the lands around us (water crises, gas and oil depredations, thoughtless development). Six diptychs will juxtapose images of different kinds of beauty." - Lucy Lippard
