PHANTOM POWER
at The Carnegie Art Center

PHANTOM POWER is an exhibition of film and video installations by local, national and international media artists including Adam Chapman, Angela Forster, Patrick Jolley, Reynold Reynolds, Leah Rico, Mark Street, Clint Wilson, and Amy Youngs. These media artists not only portray nature and the elements, but also examine the devices with which we choose to interrogate matter in its most basic form. PHANTOM POWER illustrates how, for these contemporary media artists, nature continues to functions as creative power in the material world. This exhibit, guest curated by Carolyn Tennant, is sponsored by the New York State Council for the Arts Electronic Media and Film program.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
