How We Rebuild/Paul Pearce: Fire for Effect

Fire For Effect, Paul Pearce

A showcase of both old and new work by Paul Pearce, a combat veteran who is haunted by his past. His work has evolved from anti-war to an introspective exploration of the culture of war and violence. He believes we exist in a world of tension and division – a dark cloud of fear and paranoia threatens our sense of well being.

How We Rebuild

After conflicts have ended, what does it take to recover the heartbeat of humanity? The exhibition, How We Rebuild, draws from twelve years of work created by grant winners and finalists from The Aftermath Project, a non-profit organization committed to telling the other half of war stories, after the conflicts have ended – what it takes for individuals to rebuild destroyed lives and homes, to restore civil societies, and to address the lingering wounds of war while struggling to create new avenues for peace for 35 years.

CNY Artist Initiative: Jamie Young

The CNY Artist Initiative builds upon the Everson’s ongoing support of the region’s vibrant arts community through a competitive program that highlights the multi-faceted talents of regional artists. Each year, Everson curators select six artists to display their work in solo exhibitions at the Museum. Selections are based on the innovative quality of the work, how the work aligns with the Museum’s mission, and its relevance to the community.

Chromania - Exhibit

On View January 21 – May 7, 2023

In the depths of a cold and gray Central New York winter, color is an essential therapy. The Everson embraces this impulse with Chromania, a riot of kaleidoscopic color guaranteed to chase the winter blues away. In the wake of Impressionism, twentieth century artists developed a range of strategies to explore and employ color. Painter and educator Josef Albers taught that all color is relative, meaning that the appearance of a color can change based on other colors it is surrounded by. Beginning with Albers’ iconic Homage to the Square series, Chromania explores how subsequent generations of artists in the Everson’s collection employ color in ways that are subjective and expressive as well as scientific and systematic. From the precise geometry of Peter Pincus’ ceramics to the animated gesture of a painting by Jackie Saccoccio, Chromania provides dazzle and inspiration during the long months of winter.

50th Anniversary: Selections from Light Work Collection

On view: January 28—May 14, 2023

Remarkable in its breadth and depth, Light Work’s 50th Anniversary exhibition is a thoughtful composition of photographic works that have come into Light Work’s permanent collection over the past fifty years through the generosity of former artist-in-residence participants, Grant Awardees, and individual donations. The works on view are a reflective curation from over 4,000 objects and photographic prints from an extensive and diverse archive that maps the trends and developments in contemporary photography. The semi-centennial presents a unique opportunity to share the legacy of support the organization has extended to emerging and under-represented artists working in photography and digital image-making. Highlights in the show include early works from acclaimed photographers Dawoud Bey, Carrie Mae Weems, James Welling, and more.

Hoop Dreams: Basketball and Contemporary Art

On view: February 4—May 21, 2023

A multibillion-dollar global industry that began as a recreational activity more than a century ago, the game of basketball is deeply rooted in our society and culture. Playing or watching the sport invokes intangible ideas and feelings—beauty, excitement, hope, triumph, joy, pain, defeat—experiences that define what it means to be human.

Artists have drawn creative inspiration from the personas and culture of the game for decades, and many in recent years have used them as a topic or metaphor to interrogate today’s pressing social issues, from dismantling racial stereotypes and traditional gender roles to revealing systemic economic inequities, the effects of global commodification, and more. Featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, video, and installation works created by some of the most significant living artists in the United States, Hoop Dreams demonstrates how tightly intertwined contemporary art and life are with the art of the game.
