Alex Wiseman
Invisible Family (Portraits): Smoke is a Prayer Transforming the Truth
January 17 – March 22, 2024

The Blue Galleries presents Invisible Family (Portraits): Smoke is a Prayer Transforming the Truth, a project described by artist Alex Wiseman as a weaving of time and space, of histories rendered invisible and of futures to be determined by the capacity of our hearts to reckon with them. The artist’s Chippewa (Ojibwa / Anishinaabeg) relatives have woven baskets for centuries; likewise, this work functions as a basket, embodying and containing reminders and artifacts that stitch together this question of our shared future.

Emily Somoskey
All Encompassing
January 17 – March 22, 2024

The works in the exhibition utilize paint and collaged photographic imagery as a means to think through the larger questions, curiosities, and areas of subjectivity that make up our world. Somoskey’s work depicts the universe as a flexible space that is ever-expanding, collapsing, and colliding, along with our understanding of it. She brings familiar subjects such as swimming pools, bird nests and lawn chairs in conversation with overarching mechanisms that make up our world, such as galaxies, orbital pathways and physics diagrams.
