Last week’s Alien Mask Workshop with Marta Ryczko was a smashing success — few are able to channel that inner stranger more enthusiastically and effectively than those in the grade school set. After a brief introduction to Ryczko’s haunting Alien/Recognition images in the exhibition, everyone set to work bringing their alter egos to life. Below are some of the soulful, spooky, or silly results, reproduced in black and white as an homage to Ryczko’s original images.
Happy October, everyone! We’re into week 3 with Of Other Faces, and the show continues to get a great response from everyone who visits. Manuel Saiz’s video installation featuring actors moving in synchrony with animals is a compelling (and often funny) study in nature v. culture. Victoria Fu’s elegiac film projection restores the pathos to the selfie phenomenon, while Marta Ryczko’s transformed portraits elicit equal parts fascination and repulsion. And Andrea Cohen and Wiska Radkiewicz’s collaborative sound composition is akin to an aural hall of mirrors. Don’t miss this international, intergenerational, and interdisciplinary exhibition, which continues to October 25th!
