Composer and performer Elizabeth Clark (Mamalama) fuses world and modern sacred music with immersive theater in "Seeds Under Nuclear Winter," offering sounds and visions of otherworldly realms that unfold in a non-linear, dreamlike way. The "Earth Opera" cast includes an ensemble of 25 Hudson Valley musicians, dancers, choreographers, actors, visual and performance artists telling stories of rebirth in a post-apocalyptic atmosphere.

Jayoung Yoon is a South Korean-born, New York-based artist whose primary medium is her own hair. Her work—which employs lengths of hair crossed and woven together to create semi-transparent sculptural forms and two-dimensional geometric images—draws upon the mind-matter phenomenon, exploring memory, perception, and bodily sensations. The delicate and tactile nature of the medium demands attention and presence to work that can shift as a result of subtle changes in airflow.

“A Spell is a Map to What is Meant for You” at Fridman Gallery | September 13-October 30

Alisa Sikelianos-Carter’s mixed-media works on paper explore connections between Black ancestry, power, intuition, and the divine at Fridman Gallery in Beacon. Her work engages closely with texture—hard ground, velvety gouache, glittery mica, and other luminescent materials—mapping the diversity of the color black and of the Black experience. Sikelianos-Carter creates devotional objects that assert that Black features are a manifestation of a sacred and divine technology that has served as a means of survival, both physically and metaphysically.
