15. “Tala Madani” at 303 Gallery
For her first exhibition at 303 Gallery, Tala Madani continues her enduring exploration of humanity’s intertwined capacities for wonder and brutality. Adults and infants alternately take center stage in her series of new paintings (including two large corner canvases) and hand-painted, animated videos. Each work reminds viewers that even the most hallowed social norms cannot perfectly constrain our primal urges, regardless of whether those urges are innocent or malevolent.
Location: 303 Gallery, 555 West 21st Street
Time: Tuesday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
