Opening: Joyce J. Scott at Peter Blum Gallery
“What Next and Why Not,” Joyce J. Scott’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, will showcase about 20 sculptures made since the year 2000. The artist incorporates beading, blown glass, and found objects in her artworks, which often ruminate on history, race, gender, and violence. The works on view evidence Scott’s interests in many cultural and spiritual traditions—West African Yoruba weaving and Buddhism are among the reference points. The exhibition, which follows on the heels of a Scott survey at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey, earlier this year is her first New York show in 20 years.
Peter Blum Gallery, 176 Grand Street, 6—8 p.m
