Musee Magazine review
Karen Robbins' 'Dancing'
by Isabel Sullivan
“The exhibition consists of 27 gelatin prints that capture Ballroom competitions and Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing festival. Visitors move through the space following the stills from each dance as if to partake in the movement. I wanted to become a part of this scene, a part of the dance. The photographs exude timelessness, intimacy, and freedom. They are the subjects of unfettered joy.” - Isabel Sullivan

Migrant Studies (Trees and Networks)
In The Project Room
Ellie Irons‘ collage series is on view in our Project Room through March 29th. Drawing from vintage editions of the Golden Field Guide to the Birds of North America, Migrant Studies reflects the status of birds in the age of human influence, while Network Studies uses the metaphor of networked branches and foliage to describe the interconnectedness of ecological systems.
