Art Gallery: Beyond the Pale
February 25 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, repeating until 11 Apr 2019
“Beyond the Pale” runs from February 25 through April 11. The opening reception is Thursday, March 7, from 6–8 p.m.
To go “beyond the pale” is to move outside the acceptable, the safe, and the known. “Beyond the Pale” presents work by artists who step outside the bounds of Western scientific thinking in their efforts to know and interpret the world, including Johanna Breiding & Shoghig Halajian, Olivia Chumacero & Sarita Dougherty, Veronique d’Entremont, Helen Lessick, Jennifer Moon, and Louis Pesce.
Although the exhibition does include a near-magical broom, its title has nothing to do with buckets. Instead our “pale” refers to the “paling” fence posts that would once have enclosed a village or a fort, but which are now more commonly used to “impale” Hollywood vampires.
