The Yard presents Intrinsic: Contemporary Fiber Art by Melissa Joseph, Sienna Martz, Kesiena Onosigho, Sarah G. Sharp, and Aricoco Tabei curated courtesy of Audra Lambert of ANTE.Mag.
Materiality, texture, and labor are shared qualities that fiber artists recognize as critical to their practice. This exhibition at the Yard Williamsburg Bridge explores the medium of Fiber Art through the lens of contemporary artists working with fiber, cloth, textile, fabric, and embroidery. Artists on view work across themes including the role of labor as intrinsic to the creation of their practice and labor distribution in society, economic and racial disparity, and vegan lifestyle. Visitors are invited to come examine the links between these diverse abstract artworks, which embrace both natural and geometric forms, weighing the balance between nature, society, and the built environment.
Intrinsic will be on view at The Yard: Williamsburg Bridge (195 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY) through mid- October 2020. Please check back for additional event information for this show.
The Yard: Williamsburg
The Exhibition “Inside Outside, Outside Inside” comes from a childhood phrase I learned, repeated fast like a tongue twister it was fun to say… In today’s world of Covid-19, this phrase came back to me. Those who are experiencing this crisis are now more acutely aware of the inside and outside spaces that we used to flow freely between. This time has caused a deeper contemplation of the interior and exterior world around us. The exhibition features artists Saskia Fleishman, Jodie Mim Goodnough, Kirstin Lamb, and Polly Schindler who render those dichotomous spaces. Stay safe, we are all in this together.
-Curator Dean Regal

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
Curator, Steven Torrisi presents Equanimity, a solo exhibition featuring works by M.Clark.
Equanimity is a state of psychological stability and composure which is undisturbed by experiences that may cause others to lose the balance of their mind. It’s likely that many of us have contemplated the importance of equanimity, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. Moreover, this is the essence of M. Clark’s creations. Her manipulation of heat and pressure to adhere to metallic foil on various surfaces- bringing to light dynamic conversations between constancy and chaos. The pieces reflect light in diffused patterns, producing a shifting luminosity unique to her work while complementing the stunning Bryant Park office space.
Equanimity will be on view at The Yard: Bryant Park, 3rd Floor, through early October 2020. Please check back for more information on upcoming events surrounding 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.
