Memory Forms explores notions of collective, institutional and personal memory. The exhibition opens with a look back at our 2016 New Commissions artists: Lior Shvil, Donna Huanca, Ezra Wube and Gordon Hall. Shvil and Hall presented works in our New York exhibition space, while Huanca and Wube took part in our International Collaborations Program with two solo shows in Riga, Latvia. For the Summer Benefit show, Shvil has donated a print from his September 2015 New Commission exhibition, PROTOCOLS. And Hall, two table-top sculptures from Shifters which mine the materiality of spoken and written communication.
Memory Forms continues with a look at our institutional memory with a curated selection of our Limited Editions. Artists Xaviera Simmons and Andrea Galvani work in photography, Pae White and María Elena González with sculpture, but all four pieces on view reflect a passing of time. The exhibition closes with a special selection of works donated by established artists such as Nicole Cherubini, Katy Grannan, Alfredo Jaar, Mary Mattingly, and Jason Middlebrook, among others.
