Please join curator Jenny Mushkin Goldman and artist Cheryl R. Riley for a walk-through of “Amulets Ethereal” on Saturday, June 2nd at 5pm at Barney Savage Gallery ( 87 Franklin Street, #2, between Broadway and Church in Tribeca.)
Amulets Ethereal, a group exhibition curated by Jenny Mushkin Goldman, features works by Kharis Kennedy, Adam Krueger & Tableaux Vivants, Victoria Manganiello & Julian Goldman, Qinza Najm, Cheryl R. Riley, and Ashley Zelinskie.
Amulets Ethereal contemplates humankind’s capacity for resilience and self-preservation through the presentation of individualistic artworks united by the shared motif of protective coverings. By being presented together, the artworks are recontextualized as mystical objects with the power to shield the viewer from the most tenuous of perceived dangers. Concurrently, interwoven throughout the exhibition is imagery that conveys technology’s indifference to these human fears and its potential to allay or precipitate them.
