Art Gallery: Beyond the Pale
March 7 @ 10:00 am
“Beyond the Pale” runs from March 7 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.
