Referencing the history of space and form through architecture, design, and imagery, Claudia Wieser considers the coexistence of abstraction and the physiological experience through her spatial installations. With a nod to Modernist geometric constructions inspired by the Bauhaus and influenced by spirituality within an artistic practice like artists Hilma af Klint, Wassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee before her, Generations will encompass Wieser’s distinctive, multi-faceted practice. This will include hand-painted and patterned ceramics, carved wooden sculptures, tiled mirrored sculptures, fine colored pencil and gold leaf drawings, and large and small plinths that act as both sculptures for display and sculptures themselves. Collaged together from her vast archive, the combination of textures, surfaces, and spliced imagery allows the viewer to create new histories, and in turn, see themselves both within that history and adding to it.
Opening: March 19, 2020 from 6-8PM
Ongoing: March 19, 2020 to June 13, 2020

Terra Nullius is the first solo museum show for Detroit-based visual artist, Conrad Egyir. For this debut, Egyir created a new body of work while in residency at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York City, during the summer of 2019. The works in this show focus on figurative characters that reside or bestride three geographical spaces–Detroit, New York, and Aburi, Ghana–and how the cultures of each of these locations define citizenship, migration, hybrid spaces, and political and religious revolutions. At the core of the exhibition, is finding similarities among the three psycho-social terrains and synthesizing them into a new space “Terra Nullius.” Within this new place, devoid of political and legal constructs, its residents behave as stewards of time, resources, and space.
Opening: April 16 2020 from 7-10PM
Ongoing: April 16, 2020 to June 20, 2020

Patterns of Perception is a collaborative project between a group of individuals with Parkinson’s, Central Saint Martins, English National Ballet (ENB), University College London (UCL) and artist Ruairiadh O’Connell. In 2019 a series of workshops ranging from textiles to dance and art took place to explore and understand the experiences and perceptions related to Parkinson’s. The aim was to find better ways of explaining, to a broader audience, what it means to live with Parkinson’s disease. Emphasis was put on interweaving science, dance and visual arts methods and the resulting artworks and visual diaries are presented in this exhibition.

Opening: March 24, 2020 from 2:00-4:00PM

Sense of Self features Bay Area photographers who explore identity and selfhood through portraiture.
Davina Semo’s exhibition Core Reflections marks one of two inaugural projects in di Rosa’s Conversation Pieces series. The San Francisco-based artist works across two and three dimensions, often utilizing industrial materials that examine tensions between nature, society and the self. Her project for di Rosa considers the unique setting of Gallery 1 in relation to the landscape as well as its siting as a point of public assembly. Taken as a whole, Semo’s assembly of works for di Rosa creates a subtle yet ecstatic mode of corporeal engagement by prompting a reevaluation of our contemporary mindset ruled by anxieties and unease. Core Reflections invites sustained moments of introspection and contemplation within the permeable precipice of built and organic space.
