UPCOMING | Fahamu Pecou | August 26 – Oct 8, 2016



Fahamu Pecou
DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance



This solo exhibition features the work of Fahamu Pecou, an artist profoundly involved in exploring the state of Black existence – life and death – today. Violence in our society is endemic and pervasive. Undeniably Black bodies are disproportionately affected, through the shameful legacy of slavery and Jim Crow to current day shootings – the massacre at Charleston’s own Emanuel AME church in summer 2015 sadly just one tragic example of many.

UPCOMING | Sara Angelucci | October 21 – December 10, 2016



Sara Angelucci
Aviary



Sara Angelucci’s practice is based in photography, video and audio, exploring vernacular photographs and films, and analyzing the original context in which images are made. Drawing attention to conventions of image making, her work foregrounds the cultural role vernacular images play in framing particular stories, creating histories, and memorialization. Over the years her projects have developed from an examination of the family archive and immigration, to a broader analysis and interpretation of anonymous/found photographs.

UPCOMING | Peter Eudenbach | October 21 – December 10, 2016



Peter Eudenbach
This is Not an Object



The exhibition This is Not an Object will feature work by Virginia-based conceptual artist Peter Eudenbach, who creates objects investigating “the relationship between function and absurdity.” Using sculpture, installation, and video, Eudenbach explores the history of art and science while toying with our expectations of the commonplace. He often creates multiples and edition pieces and as Eudenbach states, “The ideas normally emerge from a search for poetry among serendipitous juxtapositions.”
