BACK TO THE FUTURE—CULTURAL FRAGMENTS

Presented at:
Hallwalls

Sculptures and Paintings by Chris Howard and Joy Episalla.

November 18–December 17, 1988
Opening reception: Friday, November 18, 1988, 9:00 p.m.


This two-artist exhibition of painting and sculpture might resemble some futuristic science museum display representing salient features of our culture's production. In this future site, the mundane would become iconic and the relative value of the represented objects grotesquely exaggerated.

Chris Howard's sculptures apply meticulous craft to pieces of stone. His work carries with it the history of stonecarving, bringing to mind such masterpieces as Michelangelo's David, but replacing mythic heroes as subject matter with contemporary symbols.

Joy Episalla's paintings represent present-day gateways to the underworld. These commonly observed but usually ignored objects reveal their omnipresence in Episalla's subtle renditions.

Both artists live in the New York City area, Howard in Brooklyn, Episalla in Hoboken, NJ.

Exhibition curated by Catherine Howe.

Tony Conrad @ Hallwalls


Culled from nearly 40 years of Hallwalls' still and video archives (1977–2014), this exhibition will serve as a prelude to Introducing Tony Conrad, the upcoming retrospective at the UB Art Gallery and Albright Knox Art Gallery, by showcasing a selection of performances and still imagery documenting Conrad's decades-long association with Hallwalls.
