Expo 1: New York is an exploration of ecological challenges in the context of the economic and sociopolitical instability of the early 21st Century. Acting under the guise of a festival-as-institution, the exhibition imagines a contemporary art museum dedicated to ecological concerns, featuring modules, interventions, solo projects, and group exhibitions that take of the entirety of MoMA PS1 along with presentations at the The Museum of Modern Art and in Rockaway Beach.
EXPO 1: New York focuses on some of the most pressing environmental and sociopolitical issues of the day. These concerns are described, examined, and addressed through different modes, including exhibitions of artworks in gallery spaces, educational lectures, interactive experiential environments, experiments in communal living, a prototype garden for educational purposes, and a regular program of moving images.

We are proud to share Alan Gutierrez's forthcoming solo exhibition, Self-work at Kosmeticsalon Babette in Berlin. As an independent extension of Gutierrez's INTRO, currently on view at Emerson Dorsch through July 20, Self-work is a presentation of poetry in the form of individual scrolling-text videos. The large-scale projections will be visible from the interior as well as the exterior of Kosmeticsalon Babette's glass exhibition space. This selection of poetry was written between Miami and Berlin within the last several months and resembles teleprompters with gradient palettes. The poetry in video-form not only lends itself to large-scale projections but also as highly distributable and accessible online content.
Brookhart Jonquil's recent exhibition In a Perfect World and Rene Barge's Relay in the Project Room have both been reviewed by Cara Despain in the latest issue of the Miami Rail.
