Samuel Levi Jones: The Empire is Falling

November 5, 2021–January 16, 2022

Jones’ paintings are comprised of the rended covers of books whose purpose is to influence, educate, and inform. In his effort to investigate omissions and falsehoods deeply embedded within these volumes, Jones sews the book covers back together to create uncannily beautiful abstract paintings, often at a large scale.

Willis “Bing” Davis: Kneel

November 5, 2021–January 16, 2022

Featuring a room-sized installation that explores police brutality through “kneelers” created with reclaimed wood sculptures. In the tradition of African Folk Art prayer, the kneelers metaphorically connect Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling protests and the fatal action in the murder of George Floyd.

Tuan Andrew Nguyen: The Boat People

November 5, 2021–January 16, 2022

Extracting and re-working narratives via history and supernaturalism is an essential part of Nguyen’s video works and sculptures where fact and fiction are both held accountable. Set in an unspecified future at the precarious edge of humanity’s possible extinction, The Boat People follows a group of children led by a strong-willed and resourceful little girl, who travel the seas and collect stories of a world they never knew through objects that survived through time.

Our galleries will be closed for the installation of our next exhibition and will reopen on Friday, November 5
