January 21: William Anastasi
A forerunner of conceptual art, William Anastasi has employed a spectrum of innovative techniques in his art from the 1960s until today including “blind” drawing and experiments in photography, installation, text and sound.

February 25: Mirta Gomez and Eduardo del Valle
Observing native architecture and landscape, this team of photographers captures the evolution of the construction of the home on the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. Sign language interpretation and FM headsets for sound amplification are provided.

March 4: Jennifer and Kevin McCoy
Collaborators since 1996, Jennifer and Kevin McCoy create multimedia installations and art projects that incorporate the new technologies of digital sound and computer software while making reference to traditional structures and images from film and cinema.

March 18: Amy Cutler
Drawing from medieval history, Indian miniature paintings, myths and fairy tales, and her memory, this Brooklyn-based artist employs gouache and vibrant colors to narrate pictorial stories that often possess a dark humor and a political undercurrent.

May 6: Gilles Peress
Working in regions of war and conflict from Bosnia and Rwanda to Afghanistan and Iraq, Magnum photographer Gilles Peress creates memorable photographs that serve as compelling evidence of history in the making.

May 13: James Carpenter
James Carpenter’s designs explore modern materials and the complex effects of light on architecture. His international projects include the reconstruction of Seven World Trade Center and the Glass Tube Field adjacent to the Tower of London.
