Recovery by Mario Moore is a series of new works based on Moore's journey back to health after undergoing an awake neurological surgery. The artist uses silverpoint drawings, stunning large-scale oil paintings on canvas and copper, and video to explore the treatment of black male bodies in America.
Library Street Collective is excited to announce this year’s iteration of Public Matter and its accompanying gallery exhibition, Xeriscape, featuring artists Nina Chanel Abney, Rosson Crow, Beverly Fishman, Tschabalala Self and Wendy White. The summer exhibition will connect the outdoors with the inside spaces by bringing large scale artworks to the Belt Alley, as well as incorporating elements of the natural world within the interior exhibition design. This adept group of female artists - each considered a strong member of the contemporary art world regardless of gender - are brought together to present varied perspectives on gender, race, identity, materiality, space and form.
