Artspace New Haven Fall Exhibition Openings

Join Artspace New Haven for the opening of our fall exhibitions and continued free and public programming throughout the semester. These exhibitions continue our yearly 2022–2023 theme exploring complex systems exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, these exhibitions address the varying scales and arenas in which extractive capitalism operates.

In her solo exhibition Revelations, artist Ilana Harris-Babou presents recent video installations, collages, and ceramics navigating contradictory desires bound within our all-consuming image culture. Using the aesthetics of advertising and social media DIY influencing within wellness culture, Harris-Babou stages darkly humorous and subversive revelations about material quick-fixes for structural inequities. Rather than offering a critique of biblical proportions, the works disclose Black self-determinations.

Artistic duo Alejandra Salinas and Aeron Bergman (Bergman & Salinas), present a new series of conceptual works including sculptures, wall-mounted mixed-media, photography, painting on canvas, sound, and text works in their solo exhibition Against the Common Good/ Contra el Bien General. This body of work critiques how systems of capitalism corral the commons, against the general good for humans and non-humans alike. The title is borrowed from a print from The Disasters of War series (produced between 1810–1820) by painter and printmaker Francisco Goya (1746–1828).

The exhibitions open on Saturday, September 17th, 6:00–8:00 PM, preceded by a poetry reading from Joan Naviyuk Kane at 5:00 PM, "Saġuiŋaruq: It Is Sinuous." Both exhibitions are accompanied by free public programming series available on our calendar (subscribe to add all to your calendar), in addition to publications. For Bergman & Salinas, the publication Contra el Bien General constitutes a work in the exhibition, and the exhibition catalog for Ilana Harris-Babou's exhibition will be available in December, featuring new scholarship from Re'al Christian, Laurel V. McLaughlin, Yasmina Price, and Wendy Vogel.

If you'd like to schedule a tour of the exhibitions, please reach out and let me know. I'm offering tours in English on Wednesdays/ Thursdays, from 12–6 PM. Our Gallery Assistant, Andry Peña del Jesus, is offering tours in Spanish on Thursdays, 12–4 and Fridays 3–6 PM.

Join us!


All best,

Laurel McLaughlin

Rebalancing Community Power for More Effective Neighborhood Investment

Even when economic development programs succeed in boosting livelihoods and community investments, they too often fail to benefit the very people and places experiencing the harmful impacts of long-term, systemic economic deprivation. That’s a failure of commitment. Here, LISC program officer Teresa Garcia makes the case for a new approach to economic development that centers the communities most in need—and makes equity its guiding aim.
