Ralph Fasanella: Lest We Forget
Ralph Fasanella (1914–1997) celebrated the common man and tackled complex issues of postwar America in colorful, socially minded paintings. This exhibition celebrates the one hundredth anniversary of the artist’s birth and brings together key works from a career spanning fifty-two years. Fasanella was born in the Bronx and grew up in working-class neighborhoods of New York; he became a tireless advocate for laborers’ rights, first as a union organizer and later as a painter.

Willem van Genk: Mind Traffic 
This is the first monographic exhibition of works by the internationally acclaimed Dutch artist Willem van Genk (1927-2005) to be presented in the United States. The exhibition includes over forty artworks: panoramic paintings, collages, drawings, personal notes, sculptures of trolleys, and an installation of raincoats (van Genk collected hundreds of raincoats over the course of his lifetime). This comprehensive selection provides an overview of the artist’s oeuvre and insight into his creative processes, methods, and themes. Van Genk’s artworks usually depict intricately layered and densely networked urban panoramas and reference interconnectivity. He was a restless stockpiler of information, factoids, and trivia: from this perspective, the artworks can be seen as memory palaces—visualizations implemented to organize and recall information. These imaginary landscapes serve as sophisticated devices and scaffolds to map hidden forces, since the artist believed that all things were connected via both visible and invisible networks.
