DESCRIPTION

Pablo Helguera, Watervliet

Five Brooklyn-based artists examine obsolete phenomena, ideas, and forms which contain signs of a modernist utopian promise for a future. They navigate between modernity and history, seeking out the forms that address these questions: Can the passage from the modern to the historic be represented without falling into nostalgia? What kind of knowledge can be derived from reflections of the historic in the present? In other words, is it possible to reveal the modernist potential of the past-can the potential of dreams still be realized-without abandoning the modern?

The opening on Tuesday, March 18 from 7 to 9 pm, will feature a performance of Shaker songs by Pablo Helguera.
