Hudson Valley Artists 2020: New Folk

Curated by Anna Conlan

September 12 – October 25, 2020
Alice and Horace Chandler Gallery and North Gallery


This year’s annual Hudson Valley Artists juried show features twenty-nine local artists in a vibrant exploration of craft, cultural heritage, and the communities we create together. New Folk showcases artwork that distinctively captures the spirit of contemporary folk practice in the Hudson Valley today. It offers a vision of what folk art can be—highly skilled, locally-sourced, idiosyncratic, and resourceful. New Folk is also a catch-all for the long history of visitors and immigrants in our region, and the exhibition explores the inherited cultural traditions that “new folk” bring with them.

Dos Mundos: (Re)Constructing Narratives

Dos Mundos: (Re)Constructing Narratives is a curated exhibition, organized to present the photographs of 12 artists of color who are recipients of En Foco's Photography Fellowships. The current Dos Mundos theme is inspired by the 1973 Dos Mundos exhibition, and hopes to not only capture the contemporary duality of traditions and cultures in immigrant and ethnic communities, but to also revisit and demonstrate the challenges of systemic exclusion from the mainstream as described by the 1973 exhibition.

We Wear the Mask: Race and Representation in the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art Permanent Collection

Curated by Jean-Marc Superville Sovak

September 12 – November 22, 2020
Seminar Room Gallery


Taking its cue from Paul Lawrence Dunbar’s 1895 poem, We Wear the Mask pairs artwork from the Museum’s collection in a series of trans-historical, multi-cultural dialogues, using “remixing” as a strategy to unmask the ways racialized identities are presented and perceived.

Infra-Loop: Kathy Goodell Selected Works 1994—2020

Curated by Andrew Woolbright

February 6 – July 11, 2021
Morgan Anderson Gallery and Howard Greenberg Family Gallery

Kathy Goodell, Mesmer Eyes (detail), 2012

explores the artistic practice of Kathy Goodell, whose work remains a mysterious synthesis. Associated with many movements and contemporaries, Goodell’s career charts a path and fills in the gaps of what we think about art in the ‘90s, ‘00s, and the present. Her practice has determined itself through a kind of non-specificity, one that resists easy classification and interpretation. The meaning of her work, and context through which we are to understand it, is simultaneous and withheld—west coast spiritualism meets east coast abstraction; procedural non-objectivity blends with painterly biomorphism; protean theosophy informs post-modernist contemporary. This survey of work explores the through-lines in Goodell's practice as a moving target, examining an artist that is constantly challenging and reinventing her practice.
