The Hard Problem: Sara Coffin and Dani LevineJune 5 through June 23, 2018
Sara Coffin and Dani Levine both work with distinct methods of reasoning. Things are measured, balanced, weighed, tested. Colors are matched or suspended. Surfaces are scouted and developed. But the work always exceeds its parameters, and they work this way knowing an accumulation will acure. In a kind of single-minded push forward revelation only appears when all pieces align on top of which they were meant.
Opening Reception | June 5 | 6-8pm

According to the renowned director János Mohácsi and his former students, we can do so with the help of jokes and songs, documents from the 30s and 40s, and by reciting them – in pitch darkness.
