Sex and Death by Linda Lighton

September 8 - October 8
Patrick Parrish Gallery,
50 Lispenard Street

Sex and Death

Patrick Parrish Gallery in New York presents Sex and Death, a solo exhibition of ceramic sculpture by Kansas City based artist Linda Lighton ('89 sculpture). In this exhibition, Lighton shows us a luscious and fragrant sensuality alongside stark, mechanical images of firearms. Large flowers growing gun forms, or a crystalline growth of lipsticks and bullets, look at the repellant and seductive nature of violence, and its intimate relationship with the sexual. Lighton addresses her concern with the growing prevalence of gun violence, and juxtaposes it with images of life and fecundity, that reveal both vulnerability and resilience. These sculptures suggest that, rather than suppress these energies, we bring ourselves to think about and feel them. This exhibition is an invitation for conversation about these often taboo topics

Policing Gender: Works by Lorenzo Triburgo

PolicingGender CardFront

Policing Gender at KCAI Crossroads Gallery: Center for Contemporary Practice is an installation of photographs and audio that addresses the loneliness, danger and fear of queer existence that are perhaps nowhere more perceptible in the U.S. than in the prison system. The title Policing Gender, refers to the surveillance, policing and punishment of LGBTQ bodies in the United States. Rather than approach the series from a literal perspective that relies on the visual language of suffering, Lorenzo Triburgo employs visual metaphors that conjure both absence and surveillance. His large­scale photographs of fabric call to mind the site of a portrait, but where one might expect to see a subject, we find instead a lush darkness. In this way, Triburgo reflects on the absence of community members who have been “shuffled out of sight and shuttered out of reach.” Hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; 6 to 8 p.m. First Friday in October; Saturday by appointment.
