Here’s more information about both exhibitions:

In the painterly practices of each of these artists, notions of iconography, history, language and material coalesce in startlingly personal ways, offering a refreshing take on discourses surrounding contemporary painting, community and inner worlds.

On view: April 29 – May 28, 2017
