Beatriz Cortez: Cosmic Portals
February 5–April 12, 2022
Beatriz Cortez’s new body of work continues her exploration into Indigenous knowledges, multiple temporalities, and ancient forms of abstraction. A two-part installation, the exhibition features a large-scale indoor sculpture referencing an ancient Mayan observatory placed in dialogue with an outdoor work inspired by a mosaic built twenty-nine centuries ago by the ancient Olmec people. While one structure looks out toward the skies the other is directed towards the underworld.

Pau S. Pescador: Working
January 29-April 12, 2022
Pau S. Pescador: Working explores the stories of trans individuals employed in the civil service sector at a time when legal protections have become contested ground. Pescador addresses these conditions in a video comprising interviews with US government trans employees and cultural historians to understand the challenges that this bureaucratic environment presents for a trans, non-binary, gender queer individual. In a series of photographic collage works, the artist’s body interacts with everyday objects in spaces where they worked during the early stages of their transition. Despite the legal protections for gender expression as well as the support from some colleagues, Pescador and other trans non-binary individuals are subject to constant microaggressions as they navigate the complexity and conservative nature of government bureaucracy.

Jenny Perlin: Maelstrom
September 11–December 11, 2021
“The great whirlpool arrives and sucks everything into its center, spitting out only fragments and noises. The shoreline is in view, but unreachable. The maelstrom pulls us under. This 16mm hand-processed high contrast experimental film is covered in scratches and scrapes, giving the impression it’s been retrieved after many years from the bottom of the sea.”Jenny Perlin
