INSECURITY: I’m Trying to Tell You How I Feel (2009-2019) by Aaron Krach, Curated by Melinda Wang '99

In 2009, Aaron Krach presented his piece, “Indestructible Artifact #11 (Confidence),” at the Art Institute of Boston.  It was later featured in Artforum and sold at the New Museum store. A play on the t-shirts worn by security guards, the work explored what then felt like precarious times – the immediate aftermath of the financial crisis, a new president, wars on multiple fronts, a shocking jet crash into the Hudson River. . .  And what does it mean to wear an honest, and perhaps humbling, statement so openly? Revisiting the piece 10 years later, and two years into the current presidential administration, Krach believes “insecurity” has taken on an exponentially more urgent meaning.

Westchester Tigers: Come see Dominique Salerno '10 star a new play: "The Color of Light"

For Tigers in the Westchester, NY area: come see Dominique Salerno ('10) star in a new play: "The Color of Light" at The Schoolhouse Theatre in Croton Falls, NY.

"The Color of Light" explores the relationship between Henri Matisse and his young night nurse, Monique Bourgeoise, who later follows her religious calling and becomes the nun Sister Jacques Marie. Years later, Sister Jacques Marie inspires Matisse to create The Chapel Du Rosaire in Vence, which many consider to be this atheist artist's true masterpiece. This tender play focuses on the power of art, belief, and most of all: friendship.
