FIVE ARTISTS
FIVE ARTISTS

Guest curator Susan Wyatt. Works by Ira Joel Haber; Neil Jenny; Malcolm Morley; Lucas Samaras; Italo Scanga.

 
"By Using direct and powerful images, these five artists evoke associations and emotions that are universal Both the immediacy and the remoteness of these images produce a feeling of apprehension and inevitability. This show is about the external (mundane) creating the internal (mnemonic) and allowing one instant of perception to create a distilled moment that is provocative and disquieting." - Susan Wyatt

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.
