Upcoming exhibit

‰Opening Aug. 15 — “ARCADE/ARCADIA: Ellen Harvey.” A summer of thought-provoking installations continues with an immersive experience where an amusement arcade collides with a gallery. Step inside an old-fashioned aluminum fairground sign, and discover hand-engraved mirrors offering a 360-degree view of a derelict seaside resort, creating an unsettling embodiment of how easily the desire for the sublime can collapse into an acceptance of commercial spectacle.
