Updates for the next month:
“This House is Not a Home”
Opening February 25th! 6:00 to 11:00 p.m.
Work in this exhibition responds to the concept of home, as a place and a mindset, a psycho-geography, a set of relationships with things and people, within the home, and surrounding the home, a stage set with social and material parameters, an idea that is perhaps never realized, a story that we tell ourselves and others that is both documentary and fiction… Participating artists to be announced soon!
“The Underground Railroad” and “Zamin”
Join us on Saturday, February 11 at 1pm for a reading of a play about the Underground Railroad, and stick around until 7pm for a concert by local band Zamin. (Zamin will also play on February 25th, so mark your calendars!)
This is the last week for Kagan Radios! Don’t miss it. All radios are for sale so come in and find your favorite. These beautiful radios are destined to be in a solo show at Intuit next year! A request for temporary loan will be given with each purchase.
