  • Before his untimely death last year, artist and Underground Museum cofounder Noah Davis conceived a series of exhibitions of works from MoCA’s collection, but installed here, west of the trending downtown area and away from the city’s usual gallery districts. This show, titled “Non-Fiction,” is the second such collaboration between the two institutions, redistributing works by Kara Walker, Henry Taylor, Theaster Gates, Robert Gober, David Hammons, and Deana Lawson, among others, back into the city to address the systemic violence perpetrated on black people.

  • The first North American retrospective for Native American artist, activist, poet, and performer Jimmie Durham, titled “At the Center of the World,” is a rare chance to see work from a major American artist who not only left the US in 1987 but has since then intentionally withheld much of his practice from audiences here. With close to two hundred objects dating from 1970 to the present, the exhibition will notably feature his sculptural assemblages, often made from natural materials such as bone, stone, and wood. Finally, we have a chance to at least glimpse the edges of Durham’s expansive world.
