Exhibits

"Orly Cogan."
Orly Cogan uses embroidery to transform vintage printed textiles into contemporary explorations of feminine archetypes and stereotypes. Drawing upon historic events, pop-culture, fairy tales, and personal experiences, Cogan creates humorous and imaginative hand-stitched narratives that consider themes such as sexuality, feminism, domesticity, and power to portray the evolving role of women in society.

"Andy Warhol: #NOFILTER."
From 1970 to 1987, Andy Warhol carried a camera with him daily to document intimate and personal events and social engagements, or to create commissioned portraits for commercial purposes. A prescient artist infatuated by fame and a compulsive diarist, Warhol understood long before the internet the power of photography to cultivate, massage, and maintain a public persona. The exhibition includes behind-the scenes black and white photographs of his friends and family, Polaroid images used for his silk-screen paintings, as well as, a selection of silk-screen prints.
