Olalekan Jeyifous: Even in Arcadia… Opening Reception

March 16 @ 3:00 pm 5:00 pm EDT

Join us on Saturday, March 16 from 3-5 PM in the Newmark Gallery for the opening reception of Olalekan Jeyifous: Even in Arcadia… 

Amid evolving environmental and cultural shifts, there emerges a space for thoughtful yet whimsical reflections on an increasingly challenging reality. The tensions between our natural and built world—amplified by intensifying climate conditions—form the backdrop for Olalekan Jeyifous: Even in Arcadia… Drawing inspiration from the Arcadian myth, the exhibition juxtaposes picturesque portrayals of idyllic pastoral life with glimpses of a retro-futurist urban protopia set within the Hudson Valley. In leveraging both the artistic and literary motifs of Arcadia, the exhibition engages us in considering the possibilities and challenges posed by an inventive world-making process that is simultaneously shaped by the polished echoes of historical ideals, contemporary socio-political anxieties, and the uncertainty of our future aspirations.

Free and open to the public.

Advanced registration appreciated.
