Each year NURTUREart’s Brooklyn gallery presents a full season of group and solo exhibitions, as well as special events and off-site projects.
NURTUREart’s special events bring a diverse public together to enrich understanding, challenge thinking and form a vibrant art community.
Codes for Conduct
January 22 — February 21, 2016
This exhibition, curated by Lindsey Berfond and Jocelyn Edens, features new commissions and site-specific installations exploring the controlled and unrehearsed interactions between the body and digital tools.
Steffani Jemison: Prime
March 4 — April 3, 2016
NurtureArt is pleased to present Prime, an exhibition of paintings and photographs by Steffani Jemison. Jemison is an artist and writer who uses transparency and opacity—in language, images, and marks—to test the limits of interpretation.
Dead Lands: Karkaot Mawat
April 16 — May 15, 2016
Curated by Rotem Rozental, this exhibition engages with identity conflicts and their manifestation in contemporary work.
July 1 — August 7, 2016
Featuring: Cortney Andrews, Courtney Childress, Theresa Daddezio, Amanda Friedman, Rachel Phillips, Cheon Pyo Lee. Curated by Marco Antonini.
Vanessa Albury: Arctic, Future Relics
September 10 — October 9, 2016
Albury’s serene and consciously nostalgic images are quiet and colossal. Her sculptural photographs—which pay homage to glacial ice, a relic of the future with its irreversible depletion—illuminate the embodiment of a photographic practice.
Ellie Krakow: Arm Armature
October 22 — November 20, 2016
Krakow integrates photography and sculpture into “furniture-pedestals,” a translation of museum pedestals that suggest domestic vanities and have legs of their own.
December 3 — January 8, 2017
Curated by Steven Salzman and featuring artists Johnny Abrahams, John Aslanidis, Daniel Hill, Gilbert Hsiao, Julie Oppermann and Jessica Rosner.
The Archive of Affect
March 18 — April 16, 2017
The Archive of Affect is a group exhibition with performances that focus on rewriting, challenging, or expanding traditional archives and histories. Participating artists create ongoing works that help to amplify voices often silenced, omitted, or erased from contemporary historical narratives.
Kyoung eun Kang: 1402 Seok-Dong
October 14 — November 5, 2017
Kang enshrines routine and subtle interactions into delicate monuments. Her works, which reveal the universal in the particular, memorialize the gestures that attach and bind us to family and strangers alike.
Call and Response
February 3 — February 25, 2018
A group exhibition curated by Kelly Rae Aldridge and featuring artists Salome Asega, Sophia Brueckner, Ornella Fieres, Sam Lavigne and Mendi + Keith Obadike. Call and Response explores how we speak to our machines and how our machines speak through us.
