Gomez/Wilson: Windows & Mirrors at New Capital

  • Gomez/Wilson: Windows & Mirrors

If you haven't ventured over to the East Garfield Park galleries yet, now is the time. New Capital just opened a new show that is definitely worth the trip. Gomez/Wilson: Windows & Mirrors features the work of Andrew Norman Wilson on the first floor and Sayre Gomez on the second floor of this split-level exhibition space. Wilson's hauntingly mesmerizing projections directly engage the idiosyncratic architecture (one brick corner is especially intriguing), while Gomez has installed well-worn but blacked-out windows on two ends of the whitewashed gallery upstairs. The thickness of the walls provides both installations with a blockage that mutely turns the viewer back to a blank beginning; a blue screen in one instance and a white wall in the other. Devening Projects also has a great exhibition of Dianna Frid's work up through December 3. Finally, look for Danielle Gustafson-Sundell, Songs That Start With I, at Julius Cæsar opening December 11.
