The Yard: Williamsburg Bridge
The Yard presents along the M Train, curated courtesy of Audra Lambert of ANTE.Mag.
This show features abstracted imagery at a range of sizes presented to feel as though one is viewing these daytime (and nighttime!) scenes from the windows of the M train. This is in dialogue with the actual M barreling past. A fun element to highlight is that all of the artists in the show are also located along the M train line in Brooklyn and Queens.
along the M Train will be on view at The Yard: Williamsburg Bridge (195 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY) through February 6, 2021. Please check back for additional event information for this show.
The Yard: Williamsburg
Kirstin Lamb Curatorial, Jordan Hutton, and The Yard: Williamsburg are pleased to present The Rainbow / Prism Show. Soft opening on September 9th, this show will run until November 10th, 2020. This show was a long time coming, starting online on March 23rd right at the beginning of the pandemic and finally installed at The Yard this September. Artists’ work will be available online at Kristen Lamb’s website throughout the run of the show, and in-person by appointment with Jordan Hutton (914-393-0253, email@example.com). There will be no opening event for the show, but we hope folks will make time to come see the show in person, we are delighted by the installation.
The Rainbow / Prism Show for me was an exploration of artists we admire working almost exclusively with rainbow and color imagery. It allowed us to look at their practices through the lens of a colorist, something that frequently feels self-indulgent, but shouldn’t. Color is important. The beauty and pleasure of color is a deep and lovely thing, revel in it, and find peace, joy, complexity.
Featured works by: Jen Shephard, Kelli Thompson, Hayley Youngs, Leigh Tarentino, Kirstin Lamb Studio, Alessandro Keegan, Leah Montalto.
This exhibition is currently on view at The Yard: Williamsburg, Floor 2 (33 Nassau Ave, Brooklyn, NY). Please reach out to the curators above to visit the show or learn more information on the works!
The Yard: City Hall Park
Eileen Jeng Lynch, Founder of Neumeraki, presents Laura Mosquera: All the Way Through. This a solo exhibition of Laura Mosquera’s work from
2014 to 2020. In the shaped paintings and work on paper, Mosquera creates psychological spaces of emotional content—capturing complexities of the human experience, including fleeting moments, feelings elicited from difficult memories of personal relationships, histories, and current events. The exhibition features abstract work as well as her return to the figurative in her recent pieces—all creating a visual tension and embodying a sense of movement.
Laura Mosquera: All the Way Through will be on display through March 5, 2021, at The Yard: City Hall Park (116 Nassau Street, New York, NY).
The Yard: Lower East Side
IFAC Arts and The Yard Lower East Side present Screams From My Bicycle, Paintings by Brian Leo. Screams From My Bicycle incorporates 70 brightly colored paintings of expressive cartoonish forms and appropriated images which draw a broad narrative on the deconstruction of personal identity, current events, social issues, and contemporary culture. The intimately sized artworks unite into a mass accumulation of images. Seemingly innocent visual clusters akin to an infinite scroll of clickbait, popup news, entertainment, and advertising create non-linear dreamscapes of our collective unconscious and the spectacle of 21st century American life.
Leo will be available for appointments while the show is on view allowing visitors to dive deeper into a dialogue with the artist at The Yard. For more information and to schedule an appointment please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 646-863-1009.
Screams From My Bicycle is currently on view at The Yard: Lower East Side, Floors 2-3 (85 Delancey Street, New York, NY).

The Yard: Herald Square
A slant is a slope, angle, or particular perspective — an inescapable bias inherent in each unique schema. These biases are constantly interacting whether in command or in chaos, and the chaos is where Szczęsna finds nuanced paintings in raw, unhindered output.
In Slant, Szczęsna presents a small-scale survey of works made over the past four years, wherein public spaces have been recontextualized as boundless canvases of layered and hasty scrawlings left behind by covert bodies, collaborating on streets, construction/demolition sites, public parks et al. Using a number of depictive strategies; photographs, sculptures, and installations to probe the nature of heterotopic spaces, Szczęsna has sought to depict the way collective desires and ideologies are writ large. In doing so she questions the foundational principles and mythologies of this country.
Slant is currently on display at The Yard: Herald Square, Floor 2 (106 W. 32nd Street, New York, NY).

The Yard: Bryant Park
The Yard presents, Displace a 90-day exhibition at their Bryant Park location. Displace will be available for private viewings December 1st, 2020 -February 28th, 2021; featuring artists Kevin Clark, Suzanne Scott, Temel Nal, and M.Clark curated by Steven Torrisi.
This collection of works underlines the current shift many of us are witnessing all around us, displacement. The sheer uprooting of traditions, norms, biases, and beliefs ultimately provides an opportunity to take a step back from the appearances rising to our perceptions and cultivate the next step forward in a new light. This exhibition depicts the thrill of individualism, unity, and the bond between the two.
Displace will be on view at The Yard: Bryant Park, 3rd Floor, through the end of February 2021. Please check back for more information on upcoming events surrounding this exhibition.
The Yard: Lincoln Square

The Yard: Columbus Circle
SARAHCROWN is pleased to announce Fairy Fruit, a new exhibition that features five Brooklyn-based artists: Emilia Devitis, Rachel Gregor, Xavier Petromelis, Claudia Santiso, and Anita Trombetta. The exhibition offers itself to the viewer as a place of fiction, a springboard for escapism in a world where reality becomes more and more colorless.
The work in Fairy Fruit explores the ways we can see our current reality through a different, otherworldly lens. As celebrated English author Neil Gaiman once said: “Fiction can show you a different world. It can take you somewhere you’ve never been. Once you’ve visited other worlds, like those who ate fairy fruit, you can never be entirely content with the world that you grew up in. Discontent is a good thing: discontented people can modify and improve their worlds, leave them better, leave them different.” Art opens up these other worlds through these artists and inspires the viewer to think differently about the everyday world that surrounds them. Within the walls of The Yard: Columbus Circle, Fairy Fruit turns into an imaginary landscape, the world of global pandemics and crises temporarily dissolves into a distorted yet more positive version.
Fairy Fruit will run from October 26, 2020 – January 30, 2021, at The Yard: Columbus Circle, Floors 2, 11, and 12 (33 W. 60th Street, New York, NY).
The Yard: Center City
InLiquid Art + Design presents Carbon Snaps with works by Ellen Lana Abraham, Kelliane McCarthy, Jen McCleary, Robert Solomon, and Donna Sensor Thomas.
Critical Junctures need a special cohesion. A five-headed hydra held together with Carbon Snaps, these artists create a holographic mirror hybrid of representation and abstraction. Hidden connections, stardust songs, and power pyramid plants whisper a cyphered narrative for our new epoch.
This exhibition will be on view through early December 2020 at The Yard: Center City, Floors 2-5 (21 S. 11th Street, Philadelphia, PA). Please check back for more information on events surrounding this exhibition.
The Yard: Eastern Market
The Yard presents Saturation, a group artist exhibition featuring works by Heather Lynn, Sweta Shah, Meg Biram, and Michelle Izquierdo. This show was produced in partnership with Client Raiser and was guest curated by The Yard’s Head of Art Program, Michaeline Sander.
“Saturation can speak to the deep rich palettes found within these works, but also doubly connects with this moment in our history as a nation and culture. It is the one word that best describes how I personally feel about the 24-hour news cycle, social media, and the world of politics that no one can escape. We have all reached this point of saturation. With this show, I hope you are able to take a moment to find a breath in these beautiful works by studying their technique and considering the emotions they evoke within you.”
This exhibition is currently on view through January 15, 2021, at The Yard: Eastern Market. Please check back for future events around this exhibition!
The Yard: Back Bay
A R E A at The Yard presents c/o (displacement) a solo exhibition by artist Kristen Mallia. A word from the artist on the below work in the show, “A glitch is a momentary disruption that can shift alignments, alter perspective, and generate interference both in form and energy. The layering of photographic images further complicates visual information, resulting in altered realities and dream-like meditations. Multiple Exposures (Iceland Series) explores temporal, geographical, and emotional displacement as daily ritual, informed by the Icelandic landscape from Feb 01 — April 30, 2020.”
Special thanks to our wonderful curators and contributing artists! We have great admiration for the time and care spent on each of our gallery exhibitions, and we truly appreciate the intrinsic power of art as an inspiring force.
