Upcoming Exhibitions
NYC
The Criminal Type
organized by Elizabeth Breiner
September 7 - October 26, 2019

Rogues' galleries—19th century photographic exhibitions showcasing the earliest incarnations of modern-day mug shots—offer a point of departure for this exhibition examining the entwined history of photographic portraiture and criminality. Selected works will interrogate the common tools and formats of artistic, bureaucratic, and juridical portraiture, and expose those aesthetic codes that homogenize otherness and enforce a pervasive principle of "guilty until proven innocent."
Seoul, South Korea
Untitled (QueerArch)
organized by Kang Seung Lee and Jin Kwon
October 6 - November 2, 2019

Through works that re-emphasize and re-imagine QueerArch in Seoul (a.k.a. the Korea Queer Archive), this project underscores absences in the history of art and queer culture.
Bamako, Mali
Musow Ka Touma Sera
organized by Fatima Bocoum
December 5 - December 31, 2019

Translated as "The Era of Women has Arrived," this exhibition addresses the specific socio-political condition of Malian women, and is the first in Mali that is organized by a woman.
NYC
Souls Grown Diaspora
organized by Sam Gordon
January 11 - March 7, 2020

Souls Grown Diaspora is an exhibition that explores a generation of leading contemporary visionary African-American artists from the wider United States, and situates their work into an art-historical lineage shaped by the Great Migration. The exhibition traces how the migration, the movement of six million African-Americans from the rural South, between 1916 and 1970, to urban centers such as New York, Chicago, and Detroit, produced a new wave of self-taught artists whose work addresses a range of revelatory social and political subjects.
Tehran, Iran
WOMEN C(A)REATE
organized by Elnaz Mohammad Tehrani and Anahita Rezaallah
February 16 - March 14, 2020

This exhibition addresses gender-based inequities and stigma around drug addiction in Iran by presenting tapestry-based installations resulting from a collaboration between artists and recovering women addicts.
São Paulo, Brazil
Fantasy Battleground
organized by Clarissa Aidar
April 26 - May 23, 2020

Through installations and posters spread in downtown Sao Paolo, six transgender women artists contribute works addressing themes of survival, made in partnership with local collectives.
NYC
Meteorological Mobilities
organized by Marianna Tsionki
May 28 - August 1, 2020

Meteorological Mobilities urges a radical re-thinking on the way we act collectively upon climate change as planetary citizens. Far from promoting planetary catastrophism, exotic miseries, and passive resistance, the works on view aim to raise awareness of climate injustice and challenge the dominant political power of the countries and corporations which are primary contributors to climate change.
