DAVID SMITH: THE WHITE SCULPTURES
May 13 – November 12, 2017
David Smith: The White Sculptures is the first exhibition to critically consider the use of the color white within the work of David Smith (1906–1965). Smith returned to and rediscovered this color throughout his life, whether it was in the naturally occurring white hue of found coral, as in his earliest sculptures; the white of a sunless sky or of a snowy landscape, both of which feature in his artistic photography; the white canvas or paper at the center of his Sprays, or the simple grounds of his Nudes; or the industrial white enamel that he applied to his later large- scale sculptures. Many of his works across mediums incorporate white forms as central elements, with foreground and background repeatedly reversed, questioned, and inverted. When installed in the landscape, the flatwhite planes of some of his large sculptures appear as dramatic cutouts.
OUTLOOKS: HEATHER HART
May 13 – November 26, 2017
Outlooks: Heather Hart comprises an interactive sculptural environment in the form of a domestic rooftop—a space that, in collaboration with community partners, is repeatedly enlivened by music, workshops, movement, spoken word and poetry, and other events. Hart has titled this work The Oracle of Lacuna in reference to the gaps present in official, written histories of the Hudson Valley region—gaps that individuals fill and refill with interpretations and translations originating from personal experiences, as well as fantasies. As Hart has said, “The narratives of The Oracle of Lacunaare meant to emerge and transform through public programming and viewer activation. I am interested not only in creating a site-specific liminal space for personal reclamation but also in unpacking dominant narratives and creating alternatives to them.”
