Opening May 13 2015 6-8

May 13 – 31 2015

Dawn Hunter Gallery is pleased to present “Myth, Archaeology and the Itinerant Futures” an exhibition of recent work by Jeanne Wilkinson and Maya Suess

Our very own Maya Suess is in an upcoming show! Her newest series of drawings titled The Extras is a fragmented archive that illustrates a set of characters who exist outside of organized society in an unspecified future dystopia. Following a small group of survivalist women as they enact the rituals of subsistence, the series brings to the fore questions of community and solidarity. Composed like specimen studies, each drawing is a depiction of a character, tool or scenario that exists in this imagined world; no single drawing presents a complete tableau, but instead offers a glimpse into the mythological milieu of the Extras.

The gallery is located at: 200 6th street Brooklyn NY 11215
Gallery hours: Saturday- Sunday 12 – 5pm or by appointment

Constructed from nearly 1,000 colorfully dyed concrete tiles, Fictitious Force is a temporary public art installation by artist Beka Goedde embedded in the lawn of the Old Stone House & Washington Park.

The piece is arranged in concentric circles to resemble an early American hooked or braided rug, and intended to be trod upon like paving stones. This historic site of the American Revolution is particularly suited to host a work that references traditional American craft. While meditative and still, the centrifugal pattern of the piece conveys a sense of movement that echoes the energy of the nearly 3,000 people attracted to the park daily.

This project was made in partnership with New York City Department of Parks & Recreation.

This exhibit is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council.
