Renowned collectors Herbert and Dorothy Vogel, widely known for perceptive art collecting, will show slides on their collection, describe their personal relationships with the artists and basic reasons for collecting contemporary art.

[NOTE: From March Notes, 1980: "Herbert and Dorothy Vogel are prominent New York City art collectors. As art collectors, the Vogels are not in league with the Fricks, Mellons, etc. but they have nonetheless acquired over 800 pieces of the highest quality contemporary art. Herbie Vogel, a retired postal employee and Dorothy, a Brooklyn librarian have for the past twenty years quietly purchased key works of art by: Richard Nonas, Donald Judd, Carl Andre, Sol Lowitt, Ron Gorchov, Marcel Duchamp, Lucas Samaras, Richard Tuttle, Dennis Oppenheim, Christo, and the list goes on.... The Vogels will show slides of their collection and discuss their reasons for collecting. Funds for this series are provided in part by the Bank of New York."]

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.
