Join us on Friday, September 19th from 7 to 10pm for the opening of two new exhibitions in the main and entry gallery. Featuring work from Julie Bena, Jesse Darling, Carson Fisk-Vittori, Mia Goyette and Christopher Thompson, the artists move between immediate commercial materials, imagined landscapes, pseudo-selfies and casual gestures, Late capitalism, it's like, almost over takes impending economic collapse and transformation as an inevitability to be met with a shrug, not a shudder.

In parallel, current artist-in-residence Lee Hunter opens Tracing Oblivion in the entry gallery. Tracing Oblivion offers an alternative way to look at the landscape. Through Timothy Morton's concept of the hyperobject, an object of massive scale and alarming complexity, Hunter investigates the many entanglements between objects, life forms, histories, time, and space. Tracing Oblivion is an ongoing and iterative speculation on landscapes that have no horizon, foreground, or background. The final results are site-specific, driven by an archival and forensic impulse that responds to places in all their uniqueness.

The exhibitions open on Friday, September 19th from 7pm-10pm and will remain on view Wednesday through Saturday from 12pm-6pm each week.
