Please join us for a day-long opening reception with artist Yara El-Sherbini and curator Naeem Mohaiemen in conjunction with El-Sherbini’s solo exhibition, Forms of Regulation and Control. Visitors can make appointments for 30-minute slots to view the exhibition, pick up a catalogue, and speak with the artist and curator. A maximum of 8 people will be admitted at a time.
El-Sherbini’s practice draws upon interactive artworks, using humor and play to reveal the social systems that produce unconscious bias. Her gallery interventions untangle the ways our environments are regulated, and gesture toward the biases inherent in speech, visualization, and surveillance.
Health and safety protocols for gallery visitors during opening reception
Visitors will be limited to no more than 8 people at a time. Masks or face coverings are mandatory upon entry. Stay six feet apart from others. An optional hands-free thermometer is available upon entry. Hand sanitizer will be available. Checklists and press releases are available on our website.
