Perspectives: Lara Baladi
August 29, 2015 – June 5, 2016
Egyptian-Lebanese artist Lara Baladi (born 1969) experiments with the photographic medium, investigating its history and its role in shaping perceptions of the Middle East—particularly Egypt, where she is based. This installation centers on Oum el Dounia (The Mother of the World), a large-scale tapestry based on a photographic collage.
Little Black Books: Address Books from the Archives of American Art
August 7, 2015 – November 1, 2015
This exhibition showcases a selection of personal address books of influential American artists, from Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner to Joseph Cornell and Ad Reinhardt. Like diaries, these pocket-sized books, their dog-eared pages grimy with tangled ink and pencil marks, reveal much about their owners, creating a rich paper trail of relationships while tracking the journeys of family and friends.
