NEW YORK, NY.- P·P·O·W
is presenting Days Soon to Fade, an online viewing room featuring works on paper by Kyle Dunn, Aaron Gilbert, Elizabeth Glaessner, Ramiro Gomez, Hilary Harkness, Judith Linhares, Gerald Lovell, Devin N. Morris, Betty Tompkins, and Robin F. Williams.
Days Soon to Fade brings together works made amidst the ongoing pandemic or chosen with this crisis in mind. In His House in Flames, 2020, Hilary Harkness paints over a Jim Crow Era stamp commemorating Andrew Jackson's plantation home "The Hermitage," where he enslaved 300 people. Engulfing this presidential plantation in flames, Harkness links the ravaging histories of racism and discrimination to our present moment.
Concurrently, Devin N. Morriss Endangered Were These Days Soon To Fade. Intarsia 5, 2020 grapples with the domestic space as a physical and psychological plane. Puzzle piecing both autobiographical and societal elements in wood inlay, leather, and satin, Morris knits the internal spaces which confine and define us. Taken together, the works in Days Soon to Fade reinforce the gallerys longstanding commitment to championing artistic practices that explore issues of race, gender, sexuality and social equality,
In an effort to help those most effected by our current public health crisis, P·P·O·W will donate a portion of all proceeds towards the Urban Justice Centers Domestic Violence Project. First established in East Harlem in 2003, the DVP brings together lawyers, advocates, social workers and volunteers whose mission is to help survivors of domestic violence and their children live free of violence and abuse.
As an ongoing benefit, new works will be added to this viewing room in the coming weeks.
