A site-specific dance installation by Noemie Lafrance and Locus Communis (commonplace), a solo exhibition by Adam Niklewicz. Different narrative elements are important for each artist: the artist’s or spectator’s body for Noemie Lafrance and common objects for Adam Niklewicz. Together, the works of these artists shift the meaning of the artistic object towards experience through unexpected artistic expression.

9/10 – Breaking Open the Head by Mindy Shapero at Marianne Boesky Gallery,  509
W 24th Street, 6-8pm.

In a series of sculptures, Shapero addresses the head in varying states of generation and/or dissolution. In one, the concave form is filled with endless pieces of cut paper arranged into swirling rows. The resultant black void slowly reveals itself as based upon a giant face. The similarly shell-like form of another head bears a luminous gold-leafed exterior whose interior is ringed with multi-colored puffy paint. Both works treat the act of looking as an ongoing process of transformation where interiors and exteriors meld as the head becomes a symbolic representation of imaginative flux.

D’Arcangelo (1975-1979)
