Join us at 601Artspace from June to August for Summer Sessions, a series of events, screenings, micro-exhibitions and all manner of gatherings related to art and art practices.

Install/Deinstall took place on June 14th, see images of the event here.

Here’s what’s coming up in the next month:

Fallen Sky

A video installation by Beryl Odette
with sculpture by Sarah Tortora
June 21 to July 7, 2024
Opening reception: Friday June 21, 6-8pm

Taking a cue from Chicken Little’s classic warning that the sky is falling, Beryl Odette’s  new video work literally turns the sky upside down, purposely reflecting the present day chaos of our world. Odette places the sky on the floor, offering us a meditative, if temporary, means to disconnect.

In the front of the gallery, Sarah Tortora’s sculptures function
like fragments of language and punctuation, contingent upon architecture and context to elaborate a larger narrative. They are installed site specifically at 601Artspace in conversation with the space, the viewer, and each other.

Railing Codex

An interactive exhibition by Pararailing
July 11 to 21, 2024
Opening reception: Thursday July 11, 6-8pm

Railing Codex is an installation, a community printshop, and a collective dictionary created by Pararailing (Jie Shao, Sixing Xu and Xuecan Ye), their friends, and friends of their friends. Launched in 2022 as a response to the slippage of meaning that marks our post-pandemic world, Railing Codex invites cultural practitioners—artists, curators, writers, poets, scholars, and arts workers—to each contribute a dictionary definition for a word. The exhibition at 601Artspace will bring the first three volumes of Railing Codex into a physical space: each entry is presented as a self-inking stamp, and viewers are invited to create their own prints and montages of meaning. Come make one.

The Collective Womb

A performance created by Alexandra Neuman, co-directed by Raychel Ceciro, Logan gabrielle Schulman, and Alexandra Neuman.
Friday, July 26 at 6pm
Saturday, July 27 at 2pm

The Collective Womb is a matriarchal creation story in which abortion is recognized as an ecological redistribution of life-force. Staged on a large mound of soil, the performance celebrates the macro-scale creative power of our planet and the micro-scale creative power of each individual womb. This immersive gathering will include movement, mythmaking, earth worship, and giant puppets.

Performers include: Irisdelia Garcia, Misha Volf, Kiki Milner, Teshale Nuer, Hsiao-Chu (Julia) Hsia, Nic Koller, Blaze Hubbell, Amanda Stambrosky, Federica Cuzzaniti. Costuming by Lagoon New York (Amalya Meira & Logan Blagg)
