The Ford Foundation Gallery has announced the reopening of its gallery to an in-person exhibition on June 1, presenting everything slackens in a wreck, curated by Andil Gosine. The metaphor of wreckage evokes colonialism and the destruction left in its wake, but it also echoes what the exhibition’s curator calls the “wrecking work” of marginalized peoples who answer this destruction with art that invents its own subversive forms of order, rendering alternate visions of existence, and co-existence, imaginable, and therefore possible. Featuring the work of four artists with a shared diasporic heritage, everything slackens in a wreck is the first show to appear in the Ford Foundation Gallery space since its closure in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

An exhibition of photographs by the renowned London-based artist Nadav Kander will be on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery from April 21 through June 10, 2022. Nadav Kander: The Thread, the Prix Pictet-winning photographer’s first exhibition with Howard Greenberg Gallery, will present evocative landscapes and penetrating portraits from the 1990s-2020s that evoke the interconnectedness of humanity. The exhibition title, inspired by the poem “The Way It Is” by William Stafford, refers to this common thread.
“There’s a thread you follow. It goes among/things that change. But it doesn’t change. People wonder about what you are pursuing./You have to explain about the thread.” from “The Way It Is” by William Stafford
Keith de Lellis Gallery presents a selection of over fifty photographs assigned by the editors for the pages of Life Magazine, one of the most renowned picture magazines in the world. Published weekly from 1936 to 1972, the magazine chronicled in image and word every historical event both big and small that impacted the lives of Americans north, south, east and west. Life revolutionized how readers experienced these historical events by pioneering the photo-essay, where narratives are told through the power of pictures while words take on a less significant role. This exhibition captures the wide-ranging themes published in Life Magazine including politics, war and race to popular culture, major sporting events and everyday moments that were at the heart of American culture in the twentieth century.
