Current Exhibitions (on campus and downtown)
Our Fall 2020 York College Galleries series of exhibitions and events offers a range of physical and virtual opportunities to engage with art. Though main campus will be closed to the public, exhibitions at Marketview Arts and online artist lectures will be open to the public. Our event schedule explores urgent issues of climate and racial justice while also reflecting on the turbulence of a half a century ago.
There’s Something Happening Here
(Posters from the late 60s and early 70s)
September 17 – November 14
York College Galleries (*main campus is closed to visitors)
Artist Talk/Q&A: October 14, 7:00 PM, Zoom
Social history meets great graphic design. This collection of iconic posters captures the turbulence of the late 1960s and early 1970s, revealing a complicated range of youthful optimism and discontent from exuberant psychedelic concert posters to works challenging oppressive social structures and the Vietnam War.
When the Bough Breaks
October 24 – December 12
3rd Floor, Marketview Arts
Artist Talk/Interview: October 23, 7:00PM, Zoom
This exhibition, curated by Susanne Slavick, pairs work by contemporary artists with texts exploring how the reality or representation of trees can offer solace and space, for the necessity of talking and listening, in the face of ongoing human conflict and impending climate catastrophe.
Jessi Hardesty: Beyond the Veil
October 30 – December 5
1st Floor, Marketview Arts (open to the public)
Artist Talk/Interview: Thursday, October 29, 7:00PM, Zoom
This year’s YCASE Juror is Baltimore-based artist Jessi Hardesty, the Director of Visual Art and Curator at Carroll Community College. An anxious mark maker, she channels her need to liaise with the forgotten, the secret, and the macabre through the ritual labor of woodcut.
