THRESHOLD

In THRESHOLD, 2023–2024 Fellow Allison Halter questions what it means to variously be immersed within a landscape, to function as a part of the landscape, and to become a landscape, through a triptych of asynchronously looping videos. An exploration of the erotic desire to meld with the world around us, THRESHOLD asks, “Where are the edges?”

Scab

2023–2024 Fellow Xinyi Liu explores the tactility of wounds and recovery in Scab by creating an installation featuring disposable facial wipes transformed into expansive wall hangings.

Shedding My Toxic Core

Shedding My Toxic Core is a project of new investigations by New York Member Yvonne Shortt, created in conversation with her daughter, Rebecca West. Shortt’s work explores how scarcity manifests in various sectors like education and art in the forms of competition and exclusivity. Shortt believes that abundance can provide an alternative framework to scarcity, inviting visitors to join her in conversation about sustainability, intentionality, and non-extractive approaches to artmaking.
