SCCNYC Annual In-person Holiday Party
Tuesday, December 14, 2021 6:45PM - 9:00PM
Meet and greet at the DC Moore Gallery at 535 West 22nd Street on the 2nd Floor for an elegant evening with refreshments (savories and sweets), including an open bar! starting with a gallery tour- as well as some other fun surprises.
We are indebted to gallerist and Smith alum Bridget Moore, Class of '79, who has graciously once again offered us the use of her beautiful space for the evening's soiree that will begin promptly at 6:45PM with a gallery tour of the current show by Whitfield Lovell Le Rouge et Le Noir.
Through his works and installations, Whitfield Lovell creates spaces for memory, metaphor, and emotional exploration that asks pressing questions about the past and the present. By way of Lovell's multi-sensory installation, the exhibition Le Rouge et Le Noir (the Red and the Black) unfolds throughout the gallery space as a journey of exploration. Hope and threat intertwine, and the symbolic use of color by the artist is powerful and evocative.
About Whitfield Lovell
The recipient of the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship Award in 2007, Whitfield Lovell has been the subject of numerous exhibitions, most recently Inbox: Whitfield Lovell at the Museum of Modern Art in 2017, Whitfield Lovell: Kin Series & Related Works at the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC in 2016-17.

"Lovell's work is pure visual poetry...It is a remarkable thing for a black visual artist working with black subjects to be able to slip away from easy politicization, from the narrowness of representation, and to reach toward the expression of black humanity. It is remarkable, also, to mae the argument that Lovell makes so well with his work - that what is black is at one particular and universal, familiar and unknowable."
- Kevin Quashie, published in Whitfield Lovell: Kin, 2016, p. 12.
