View exhibition page The Persistence of Weeds: Hannah Cole

I paint the daily surroundings that normally go unnoticed—a glimpse of the bookshelf, the manhole cover I walk over on my route to the grocery store, my pliers hanging on a pegboard. My paintings are at once rooted in the unique experiences of my own life, and in conversation with the larger history of American painting.

View exhibition page The Broken Fragments of My Heart: Rachel Stevens

During the Holocaust in western Ukraine, Rachel Stevens’ cousin, Lorenz Kleiner, fought the Nazis as a partisan in the forest. His Polish comrades did not know that he was Jewish. Lorenz hid his identity, as he surely would have been killed by the men who served with him. When Stevens conceived of this series of sculptures she imagined the forest as a sanctuary. However, she soon learned that the Ukrainian landscape’s deep ravines and plush earth were the site of countless mass graves. More than a million people were shot in these otherwise bucolic landscapes. This relatively unknown tragedy is called the “Holocaust by Bullets.”
