Nsenga Knight’s Fall 2016 Exhibitions

Nsenga Knight (ACG ‘10) is exhibiting work in group shows Darkwater Revival: After Terry Adkins at Arthur Ross Gallery, Open Sessions 8: Planes and Corridors at The Drawing Center and Appropriating Revolution at The Old Stone House this fall.

Open Sessions 8: Planes and Corridors opens October 7 and runs through November 6 at The Lab @ The Drawing Center (35 Wooster Street, New York). Open Sessions 8: Planes and Corridors is a group exhibition which considers drawing as a shifting outline around narratives of alienation, proximity and distance. Featuring artists ruby onyinyechi amanze, Eric Ramos Guerrero, Nsenga Knight, Lei Lei, James Mercer, Edwin Torres and Ezra Wube, the exhibition explores real and imagined landscapes, whose fluid borders and disorienting geographies reference issues around migration and a complicated topographies of the everyday. Including work that features poetry, drawing, and miniaturized land, Planes and Corridors presents drawing as an open equation where the strange and ordinary meet.

Darkwater Revival: After Terry Adkins opens August 27 and runs through December 11 at the University of Pennsylvania’s Arthur Ross Gallery (220 South 34th Street). Darkwater Revival: After Terry Adkins honors Adkins’ legacy and explores his influence as an artist, scholar, professor, colleague, and mentor at the University of Pennsylvania. The exhibition is a work of collective memory—both spiritual and conceptual in nature—that draws on his 2002 ARG exhibition Darkwater: A Recital in 4 Dominions, Terry Adkins After W.E.B. Du Bois, and includes ten artists who have been deeply inspired by his artistic practice. Featuring artists Jamal Cyrus, Nsenga Knight, Ernel Martinez, Matt Neff, Tameka Norris, Demetrius Oliver, Sean Riley, Jessica Slaven, Ivanco Talevski, Sarah Tortora and Wilmer Wilson.

Appropriating Revolution opens August 17 and runs through October 8 at The Old Stone House (336 3rd Street, Brooklyn). To mark the 240th anniversary of the Battle of Brooklyn, the Old Stone House & Washington Park (OSH) is pleased to present Appropriating Revolution, a two month exhibition and events series asking: How are artists incorporating (and sometimes reinterpreting) the symbols of past revolutions to inform their current socially-engaged work? Featuring artists Lauren Frances Adams, Jim Costanzo, Gen Howe, Robert Gould, Alicia Grullon, Nsenga Knight.
