MAKING MARKS: figural identity, transfiguration, and receptive tactility

Pentimenti Gallery , 145 North 2nd Street

ALANNA AIRITAM | HELINA METAFERIA | ALISA SIKELIANOS-CARTER | NASTASSJA E. SWIFT. | In a cultural moment marked by increased interest with the dangers, pleasures, and perils of living in a Black body, the artists here are concerned with representation of Black figures. Across an array of materials their creative approaches to the figure are expansive and imaginative. Bodies are supernatural, fragmented, non-compliant. They variably confront or upset history, geography, gender, gravity, the idea of a coherent body and the idea of linear time. | Brittany Webb, Ph.D., Evelyn and Will Kaplan Curator of Twentieth Century Art and the John Rhoden Collection, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts | Tuesday 12 pm to 5 pm, Wednesday - Friday 11 am to 5 pm, Saturday 12 pm - 5 pm. | For all inquiries or to RSVP, contact us at mail@pentimenti.com or +1 215.625.9990.
