Curated by Hugo Bastidas and Elizabeth Demaray
"In describing Leslie Kerby’s Please Stand By, a work in which the artist depicts sixteen television sets in a grid-like format, Bastidas writes, “In both form and content, Leslie Kerby’s Please Stand By reflects the great pause we are enduring. The work consists of a repeated still of a TV screen showing conflicting and disjointed information/misinformation. This work reminds us that as we carelessly or carefully sift through information, it remains nearly the same every day. The captions are about our daily routines, which are noticeably amplified due to the self-confinement we endure for safety. Kerby’s reductive visualization of our complex state makes our condition even more painfully apparent; we’ve lost our illusion of independence and realized our strength in numbers and dependence upon each other.”
Re/Location July 17- September 17, 2020
is a group exhibition that reflects the cathartic essence of the current moment. Connections have either fissured or strengthened while the new and other remain suspended in the present. The process of change appears as an alluring, unknown chasm while we remain in the middle of an ongoing motion that is conflicting, complex and unresolved.
Re/Location features new artworks by July Ancel, Ilona Anderson, LaThoriel Badenhausen, Jessica Baker, Serena Bocchino, Michele Brody, Hedwig Brouckaert, Pauline Chernichaw, Muddyum Choudhury, Vivien Collins, Ernest Concepcion, Annette Cords, Francine Demeulenaere, Cora Jane Glasser, Marietta Hoferer, Susan Kaprov, Leslie Kerby, Pavel Kraus, Michael Kukla, Sally Lelong, Katsura Okada, Miguel Olivera, Kara Rooney, Ethan Shoshan, Jaime Steiger, J. Wren Supak, and Nola Zirin.

I had the great pleasure of working within the community of Auvillar, France for the month of October, 2018 as a Fellow with the Virginia Center For
Creative Arts. I spent the time developing a community project that resulted in a book of photographs and drawings and worked with layered collages and clay to react to the history of the place and the environment— creating new stories and "artifacts"

Out of Many
Curated by Julie McKim
Inspired by Joseph Beuys’s idea of “social sculpture”, Out of Many brings together seven distinct artists to distribute their specific ideas and intentions into the world through the far-reaching forum of an art fair.
Post-war German artist Joseph Beuys created the term “social sculpture” to encompass his belief that both art and human creativity have the potential to transform society and enact social and political change. He conceived of his “multiples” as a way to distribute these intentions and ideas to a much larger audience.

Containment features artwork from a group of artists who examine the shipping containers and ships that move goods, people, and power across the oceans. The containerized shipping industry is central to international commerce and largely responsible for our increasingly globalized economy. The artists featured include David Packer, who has created a ceramic version of a shipping container, and Linda Ganjian whose sculptural installation reimagines a container-ship accident. Also included are Erin Diebboll and Gabby Miller, who have both been artists-in-residence on container ships and have created art in response to their firsthand experiences—Diebboll’s meticulous drawings illustrate the contents of shipping containers, and Miller used the ship’s engine oil as her medium for a series of paintings.
Additionally, a site-specific installation by Leslie Kerby in Marité & Joe Robinson Strolling Gallery I, explores the movement of shipping containers and incorporates sculpture, mixed media works on paper, and video animation.
It was an honor to have The World Contained II video animation featured in Art Connects New York's benefit presentation CIVITAS: Art Connects New York 2018 Spring Benefit at Paula Cooper Gallery, New York City. Honoring For Freedoms, the benfit celebrates the organization's partnership with the Robert Fulton Houses in Chelsea. Monday, June 4, 2018

The World Contained II is a collaboration between Leslie Kerby, Lianne Arnold (design) and Elisheba Ittoop (sound design).

Exhibiting works on paper and a video animation created in collaboration with designer Lianne Arnold. Catalog essay by Paul D'Agostino, Ph.D.
“In The Laying On of Hands, one of Leslie Kerby’s most polyphonic bodies of work to date, the artist turns her critical eye towards one of the most politically charged, ideologically divisive, societally expansive and, at the very same time, most deeply intimate issues of our time in the United States: our healthcare system. By tapping into a broad range of her artistic skills and techniques — drawing, painting, printmaking and mixed media collage, among others Kerby has crafted one of her most fully realized, conceptually seamless bodies of work to date.”

The World Contained II video animation, is a collaboration between visual artist Leslie Kerby designer Lianne Arnold and sound designer Elisheba Ittoop, presented in BRIC’s Garage Door Video Series.
The animation is part of a work on paper and sculpture series using shipping containers and their re-use as a construct. A now ubiquitous element of global trade, containers are increasingly repurposed as shelters and used in new community applications. The animation references this dynamic. The schedule follows:
In addition, BRIC Radio has recorded a conversation between Leslie Kerby and independent journalist Alexis Madrigal about this project and his related research for the 8-part podcast Containers—“it looks at how global trade really works and the people who do the labor of moving stuff.”
