“I Am The Magic Hand” at Sikkema Jenkins Co.
May 31 – July 12
Opening: May 31, 6-8PM
533 West 22nd Street
This exhibition takes its title from a chalk inscription on a wall that appears in John Gutmann’s 1937 photograph of the same name. The outline of a hand and inky stains of handprints surround the text, drawing attention to human presence and the animate nature of the wall itself. The works in this exhibition, like the wall, show traces of their makers yet speak in the first person. Organized by Josephine Halvorson. Artists include: Allison Katz, Carmelle Safdie, Jane Corrigan, John Gutmann, Lisa Milroy, and Paula Wilson.
