REED: INSURGENT MEXICO (Paul Leduc, 1971, Mexico, 110 min); and BLOOD OF THE CONDOR (Jorge Sanjines, 1979, Bolivia, 72 min). [REVIEWING HISTORIES: SELECTIONS FROM NEW LATIN AMERICAN CINEMA, organized by Steve Gallagher and guest-curated by Coco Fusco, with accompanying book of essays. Unexpectedly, the 224-page book fills a void in the field of Latin American film studies and Latin American studies departments across the US. Consequently, it soon sells out its first (and only) printing. Nine years later requests for the book are still coming in. — E.C.]

Sarah Sutton
Knots and Pulses

This exhibition by Ithaca-area artist Sarah Sutton will feature a series of monochromatic oil paintings that combine representational imagery with distortions and abstractions that create scenarios in flux. They are essentially landscape paintings, but Sutton's treatment of the landscape toys with its sense of space and the notion of the built vs. the natural environment.

Katie Bell
Abstract Cabinet

Katie Bell’s exhibition is a site-specific installation conceived of as a one-act drama starring anonymous artifacts. Functioning like a theatrical set, the gallery holds static characters that reference the interior architecture of corporate and commercial spaces. Sculptural objects are often fractured or untethered to a contextual structure. Functioning as a whole, the individual artefacts are a nod to players on a stage, held captive in space and time.
