Entitled TRANSPARENCY, this exhibition features work by 15 artists who are alumni of the Joan Mitchell Foundation’s Art Education Program. Alumni were challenged to consider the theme of "transparency," traversing the many meanings of the word, and contribute work within the theme that highlights their talents and pushes the bounds of their practices as young artists. The resulting exhibition ranges in content from interpersonal intimacy to sociopolitical tragedy.

A one-night performance by Jeremiah Barber. In this endurance work, set in complete darkness, the artist bounds horizontally into the air with a paper body replica. An occasional burst of light illuminates the apex of the jump, leaving the floating after-images of levitation attempts in the eyes of the audience.
