December 7, 2017–February 24, 2018
Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly takes the migration path of the Monarch butterfly, as a geographic range and a metaphor.

Rodrigo Valenzuela in The New Yorker 9.12.17

“Where Do We Stand? Two Years of Drawing with Open Sessions”
This lively show is a roll call of sorts, representing the thirty-six participants in the Drawing Center’s most recent residency program. Many of the artists work at the outskirts of drawing. Thessia Machado’s “Pitch & Yaw” is an ongoing mechanical performance: two motors with graphite tips jerk around on wires, covering a sheet of paper with feathery arcs. From afar, Rodrigo Valenzuela’s moody, architectural compositions could be mistaken for charcoal ... (read more)

Supercaliforniagilisticexpialibodcious
Human Resources  
By Lorraine Heitzman
Through September 10th
A cynic might say that galleries with cavernous exhibition spaces are compelled to fill their walls with over-sized works and that the quality of the art often does not justify their square footage.
