Opening Reception: Friday, November 13, 2015, 8:00 to 11 pm

Exhibition continues through December 18.

Hallwalls presents the fifth part of its seven-part series Amid/In Western New York, regional survey exhibitions curated by John Massier, Kyle Butler, and Rebecca Wing. Amid/In is a research-heavy project centered on the studio visit process, clustered in tight succession, and with artists/works selected in the month leading up to the exhibition's opening. It has no specific theme and is seeking to root out whatever people have going on at this moment. It is a casual survey, intensely-wrought.

From November 2014 through October 2015, 142 studio visits have been accomplished and the work of 36 regional artists exhibited. To date, the following artists have been included in the survey:

Liz Bayan • Adrian Bertolone • Marie-Claire Bozant • Emily Churco • Denton Crawford • Benjamin Entner • Dorothy Fitzgerald • Flatsitter • Martin Freeman • Pam Glick • Bobby Griffiths • Kate Gaudy • Adele Henderson • Billy Huggins • George Hughes • Richard Huntington • Kevin Kline • Bethany Krull • Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge • Liz Lessner • Ian McCrohan • Brian Milbrand • Benjamin Minter • Tommy Nguyen • David Schirm • Jason Seeley • Peter Stephens • Rodney Taylor • Marc Tomko • Allen Topolski • Jeff Vincent • virocode • Alfonso Volo • Kurt Von Voetsch • Necole Zayatz

Amid/In WNY Part 5 is made possible with a generous grant from The Marks Family Foundation, and with major program support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), a state agency.

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.
