Anne Lindberg’s first solo museum exhibition in a NYC museum – the eye’s level – is currently on view at MAD through March 3, 2019.
“Lindberg’s installations provoke emotional, visceral, and perceptual responses to color, light, architecture, time, and movement. Interested in the relationship between deep thinking and composing, especially as the latter develops and unfolds through walking, Lindberg forefronts movement as a significant component in her making, characterizing her studio practice as a paced and daily conversation with place.”
Diana Guerrero-Maciá is participating in the group exhibition Waiting for a Sign at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts, October 20, 2018 – January 12, 2019.
