Thursday, June 2, 6-9 pm: Ellen Carey | Abstractions from Light at Penumbra

Ellen Carey’s experimental photographic practice challenges representational subject matter and embraces an abstract approach. Traditionally, photograms are made with objects blocking light, but Carey’s images remove the barrier between light and paper, rendering light as the subject in her works. Carey will give a lecture shedding light on her process and expansive career followed by a black and white photogram demonstration. This lecture and demonstration is part of Photogram Programming coinciding with Roberto Huarcaya's exhibition at Penumbra, OCÉANOS

Penumbra Foundation, 36 East 30thStreet, New York, NY Register


Friday, June 3, 9;30 am-noon: Madison Square Park Conservancy Symposium

Unearthing Public art considers the ways contemporary artists and art world leaders working in the public realm are unearthing concepts and materials at and just below the surface of civilization to guide their work. What are the implications of resurrecting buried natural and manufactured histories and bringing them to the fore of expectation and imagination?

The program, inspired by Cristina Iglesias’ Landscape and Memory opening on June 1 in Madison Square Park, will examine vital questions and explore the significance of influential work that asks viewers to look deeply at what is beneath the actual and metaphorical ground plane.

Free and open to the public. Register:

Closing June 5: Faith Ringgold: American People at New Museum

Artist, author, educator, and organizer, Faith Ringgold is one of the most influential cultural figures of her generation, with a career linking the multi-disciplinary practices of the Harlem Renaissance to the political art of young Black artists working today. For sixty years, Ringgold has drawn from both personal autobiography and collective histories both to document her life as an artist and mother and to amplify struggles for social justice and equity. 

Faith Ringgold was just named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People of 2022. Don’t miss your last chance to experience the art of this American icon.

Continuing through September 5: Cecilia Vicuña: Spin Spin Triangulene at The Guggenheim

Showcasing the Chilean artist poet, activist and filmmaker Cecelia Vicuña’s artistic production from the late 1960s to today, this exhibition features new works specifically for this show and the breadth of her multidisciplinary practice, including paintings, works on paper, textiles, films, a site-specific Quipu (Knot) installation (above), and Ex-termination Living Quipu, a one-time performance in the museum’s rotunda commissioned by the Guggenheim’s Latin American Circle.

The title of Vicuña’s show, Spin Spin Triangulene, is a poetic creation based on new scientific discoveries the artist relates to the Guggenheim’s spiral rotunda and the quipu, to stress the connection between science and Indigenous knowledge Vicuña has observed since her early encounter with cybernetics as a young student in Chile.

Continuing through September 16: New York Society of Women Artists | Evolution/Revolution at Taller Boricua Gallery

The right to equal education, gallery representation, curatorial inclusion, museum presence and equivalency in sales remains a focal point for female artists and is consistent with the mission of the New York Society of Women Artists (NYSWA), now celebrating its 100th anniversary with Evolution/Revolution.

The exhibition, currently featured for Women’s History Month, reveals that social change starts in the realm of ideas as contemporary artists with diverse histories consider the challenges of immigrant rights, basic human rights, the “me too” movement, gender equality, environmental concerns, and racism. Info Left: Goodby My Chrysanthemum by Natsuki Takauji
