This is a timely group exhibition organized by Amy Kienzle and Concetta Abbate exploring themes as old as humanity itself, taken from biblical history: the ways women's voices are so often marginalized and their contributions dismissed; the experiences of populations who are oppressed, disenfranchised, and fearful; the use of food and botanicals in ritual, reciprocity, and healing. Featured artists, ALICE COHEN, CLAIRE DURAND-GASSELIN, AMY FINKBEINER, SIMONE JOHNSON, GABRIELLE MULLER, ALGIS NORVILA, ANNE SPURGEON, BEATRICE WOLERT & AMY KIENZLE.

Stainless steel laser cut outs, aluminum hand-spun cylinders, milled shavings, copper circuits -- these are the materials leftover from the manufacturing process. These too are the starting point, even the inspiration, behind the art of reVISION.
ReVISION features New York City-based artists who have worked with materials collected from Edison Price Lighting's Long Island City factory. The artists explored the factory to meet the craftspeople who first cut, bent, spun, burnished, and painted these raw metals to create architectural lighting fixtures. Each artist left the factory with surplus materials to create art of their own.
reVISION began as an exploration of the inherent and created connections between manufacturing and art. Yet after multiple visits by the artists, it evolved into something greater. reVISION became a point of connection--and in some cases, of collaboration--between people. The artists and the factory craftspeople recognized each other's respect for and mastery of the materials.
