Saturday, July 22, 6:00-8:30pm: The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys at Freight+Volume

“Don’t worry too much/It’ll happen to you”….Like the 1971 hit from Traffic, some things just seem inevitable. This week the gallery offers a group show that captures the full gamut of ethical uncertainty—from laissez-faire fun in the sun to words as weapons of protest. Recasting the
miasmic, tobacco-infused atmosphere of the song’s lyrics to be more mindful of the various social grievances that surround us on all sides today, the artists offer cautionary tales about the use and abuse of pretenses to social conscience. Above: Natalie Westbrook, Whisper, 2021

Extended through September 10: Drawings of Kahilil Gibran at Drawing Center 

A Greater Beauty: The Drawings of Kahlil Gibran features over one hundred drawings by the prolic Lebanese-American artist, poet and essayist, and coincides with the 100th anniversary of Gibran’s world-renowned publication The Prophet. Though best known for his poetry and prose, Gibran viewed himself equally as a visual artist, producing paintings, watercolors, sketches, illustrations, book covers, and more as a complement to his written work. The exhibition presents an overview of Gibran’s drawings and sketches alongside manuscript pages, notebooks, correspondence, magazine illustrations, and rst editions, providing a glimpse into the artist’s production in the context of his work as a whole.
