Bring the family to see Yvette Drury Dubinsky’s audacious and colossal installation titled “Aleppo to Damascus” at the Bruno David Gallery. Also on view this month in the New Media Room: Brett Williams’ critical video-sculpture titled “Memory Old and New”.
Yvette Drury Dubinsky’s exhibition titled “There and Gone” is inspired by her intense reaction to the violence and destruction currently happening in Syria and in the Middle East, presented as a mixed media installation with a group of related smaller works. Dubinsky traveled in Lebanon and Syria in late 2009, exploring astonishing archeological treasures and monuments. There and Gone deals with bearing witness to Syria’s war and the human plight therein as well as Dubinsky’s emotions arising as she works from the perspective of her relatively peaceful, parallel existence in the United States. Combining drawings, monoprints, painting, alternative photography, industrial materials and found objects, There and Gone imagines the pain, ruins, rubble and carnage in places which just three years ago were alive and intact. The exhibition will be on view May 10–June 15, 2013.
