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.
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.
Bang Geul Han: Ugly Feeling
March 9 — April 1, 2018
Ugly Feeling is a solo exhibition by Bang Geul Han that claims space to represent both highly personal experiences and overtly public manifestations of sexism, misogyny, and violence, as well as setting these accounts face-to-face with anti-feminist statements made by powerful and marginal figures.
Laura Bernstein: Becoming Beast
April 13 — May 6, 2018
NURTUREart is pleased to present Becoming Beast, a solo exhibition of sculpture and a multi-channel video installation by Laura Bernstein. In the style of a natural history museum exhibit, audiences are presented with grotesque humanoid beasts from a confluence of pre-enlightenment fantasies and future environmental collapse anxiety.
(Social) STATUS: UPDATE
May 19 — June 10, 2018
NURTUREart is pleased to present, (Social) STATUS: UPDATE, curated by students from Juan Morel Campos High School with Allison Peller and featuring artists Tyler Bohm, Maria De Los Angeles, Wojciech Gilewicz, Kay Gordon, and Yeimi Salazar.
