Jenny Doores & Andrew Cho. Devil Take the Hindmost

April 20 @ 9:00 am - May 19 @ 5:00 pm

INSIGHT Art Talk: April 30  |  7 pm Jenny Doores combines bold simplicity and fantastic imagery in her sculptures. Nude women travel on the shells of giant tortoises. A blindfolded woman emotionlessly nurses a bald homunculus in spectacles and a business suit. These figures are robust and idealized archetypes.

These materials…

Emmy Lingsheit. Seconds

May 18 @ 5:00 pm - June 23 @ 9:00 pm

Emmy Lingscheit’s work explores ideas of environmental change and geopolitical upheaval, and investigates the ambiguities and exchanges between organisms and non-organisms, and between humans and non-humans. These seemingly rigid categories become increasingly blurry as technological advances take us further into a postnatural domain, and scientific research continues to reveal surprising insights into the world we think we know. Lingscheit’s prints and sculptural works explore the myriad ways in which we are enmeshed with the non-human, from the cellular level to…
