Liz Johnson Artur, Untitled, 1996–2012. Chromogenic photograph, 20 x 24"

Spring Exhibitions Opening Fri, Jan 17 7–9 pm

Liz Johnson Artur: Dusha
In this touring exhibition organized by the Brooklyn Museum, more than sixty photographs, two videos, and a selection of sketchbooks from Liz Johnson Artur's ongoing Black Balloon Archive will be on view. "Dusha" is the Russian word for soul, and Johnson Artur, a self-described product of migration—daughter of a Russian mother and a Ghanaian father—makes pictures driven by a desire for connection, a link to other people of the African diaspora.

Derek Fordjour: SHELTER
A New York-based artist of Ghanaian heritage, Derek Fordjour works in the realms of figurative painting, installation, and sculpture. For CAM he creates a site-specific, immersive installation, SHELTER, a makeshift ramshackle structure that places museum-goers at the heart of a storm. Fordjour's first solo museum exhibition also features the return of CAM's Project Wall, where the artist will hang a selection of his vibrant paintings.
Marina Zurkow: The Thirsty Bird
Marina Zurkow is a media artist focused on the intersection of nature and culture, her work offering wry and pointed critiques of this perilously dysfunctional relationship. Her Street Views video is inspired by a two-week residency in Texas's Permian Basin, where she met with geologists, naturalists, cattlemen, oilmen, and activists. From these diverse interactions and research, Zurkow offers The Thirsty Bird, parallel narratives of two essential, yet incompatible elements, oil and water.

Museum hours: Wed–Sun 10:00 am–5:00 pm; Open until 8:00 pm Thu & Fri
