Black Mondays: Good Vision
Kathleen Cullen Fine Arts has invited Thomas McDonell to curate another Black Mondays exhibition. The first show by that title (opened and closed at the gallery in Spring 2009) was meant to hang on the idea of relentless bad news. The title is an expression used in reference to unexpected, unthinkable disaster. On "black" Mondays, terrible things happen without warning -- and the works of art in the first show reflected "the darkness of our troubled time."

This second exhibition proposes that, in the context of these relentless black days, extra attention be paid to the idea and the act of looking. When we reflect on our lives -- our love and our politics, our culture -- the most important thing we can do is look hard; we examine the phenomena that surround us and the quality of our sight determines the power of our discoveries. So we aim for good vision.

The exhibition includes new work by Sebastian Black, Elaine Cameron-Weir, Jake Cohen, Thomas McDonell, and Borna Sammak.

Black Mondays: Good Vision will be open from October 18th through November 11th at Kathleen Cullen Fine Arts at 526 West 26th Street, New York, NY. There will be an opening reception on Monday, October 18th from 6-8pm.
