"Otherworld: Explorations of the Uncanny"

Alison Ward curates a show featuring artwork by Lauriston Avery, Jenny
Doussan, Josh Kil, Wyatt Nash, Clive Murphy, and Alison Ward. It is a
mix of painting, drawing, sculpture, video, and sound work that deals
with the notion of cognitive dissonance - that uncanny feeling that
happens when one holds two contradictory ideas simultaneously. All of
the work that she has chosen for the show has a dialogue with the
other pieces as well, so the whole exhibition should read as a larger
installation piece. The show opens on Friday May 1st with a reception
that evening, and will be open for the 3rd Annual Mott Haven Open
Studio Tour on Saturday the 2nd from 4pm-6pm.
