The exhibition entitled Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose features works by artists in a variety of media, such as installation, painting, photography, sculpture and ceramics. Below are a few of my favorists:

“Eutopia”, derived from the Greek εὖ (‘good’ or ‘well’) and τόπος (‘place’), describes a society with qualities considerably better than ours.
This large-scale, site-responsive exhibition connects artwork and installations by Sabrina Barrios, Sarah E. Brook, Charles Heppner, Carlton Scott Sturgill, TAXIPLASM, TJ Volonis & Dale Williams to the storied past and bucolic present of Staten Island’s historic Snug Harbor — creating a space to present the energy and form of dreams made real.
Curation, lighting & technical design by George Del Barrio.
On Sunday, August 16th from 2-4pm families are invited to a drop-in workshop inspired by Lauren Halsey’s artwork in the Everything, Everyday exhibition at The Studio Museum in Harlem. As a 2014-15 Artist in Residence Lauren constructed one of her “kingdoms,” built environments that combine contemporary and ancient imagery with materials ranging from crystals and LEDs to lasers, iridescent light and more in the Mezzanine Gallery space. Families are invited to think on how might they build their own kingdom and create their own sculptural creations.
Below are some photographs I took of the installation at The Studio Museum in Harlem
