Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

In Did you have a hard time finding me?, 2023–2024 Fellow Denisse Griselda Reyes humorously meditates on questions of self-formation, reparative representation, and archival preservation. Anchoring this exhibition is a short film that juxtaposes the border crossings of Reyes’s grandmother Anita in El Salvador, and the queer dating life of Reyes’s indignant and savvy alter-ego, Griselda.

In New Work, New York Member Ann Schaumburger extends her fifty-year practice of using the structure of the house to explore how colors interact with one another. Inspired by the biography of Henry David Thoreau, the houses in these Flashe on panel paintings are mounted on wheels. “The idea of taking a solid house, attached to the ground, and letting it roll away,” Schaumburger says, “seems both comical and deeply suggestive of our times.”
