Warhol’s Army, Lydia Moyer

Drag queens, lady celebrities and hangers-on from Andy Warhol’s New York are reimagined as an anonymous femme militia in these altered photographs printed on silk georgette. Working from a collection of Warhol’s polaroids taken between the 1950s and 1980s, these images reference the sartorial choices of Antifa activists and Zapatistas, meant to obscure identity, while inadvertently suggesting the modesty garments of conservative Muslim women, which are meant to obscure form. Each reference is at odds in its own way with the pop culture that Warhol helped shape, leaving viewers at the intersection of leftist activism, religious conservatism and the one-time glitterati, an intersection with a strange politics of its own.

"Capturing a Moment in Time" Sarah Baptist

Sarah is an urban landscape oil painter, who enjoys plein air painting. She finds the juxtaposition of man and nature intriguing. While on location, Sarah is responding to the vertical and horizontal structures in landscape and the way light, color and texture interact with each other. How they conflict and contrast with each other and yet seem to morph into their own composed design is a never-ending challenge and joy. Sarah‘s artwork is still about illusion and creating worlds, it’s just on a smaller scale now.

The Delaware Contemporary presents an exhibition of 40 new works created in both China and the United States by Chinese contemporary artist, No. 223 (a.k.a. Lin Zhipeng) as part of an initiative promoting cultural exchange. Amphibian Relationships marks the first solo exhibition of No. 223's works in the United States.

YOU CAN'T MAKE IT WITHOUT EVER EVEN TRYING, University of Delaware Curatorial Fellow Solo Exhibition by Kate Testa

In a joint venture with the University of Delaware, The Delaware Contemporary is pleased to announce You Can't Make It Without Ever Even Trying, a solo exhibition of the work by Kate Testa, the 2018-19 University of Delaware Curatorial Fellow. Using mixed media and repetitive forms of translating images into ritualistic objects, Testa's work explores themes of the metaphysical and the occult while investigating how the art-making process can transcend into a spiritual practice.

SPIDER MOTHER, Draper Experiment by Clay Dunklin

Our fourth Draper Experiment installment features Spider Mother, a series of white microcrystalline wax vessels by Clay Dunklin. In this site-specific installation, Dunklin arranges a web of 30 shallow, bowl-like forms that are inverted skullcaps cast from the artist's own head. Through the use of projection mapping software, Dunklin's vessels appear to glow and emanate their own pulsating light, forming an alien terrain of seemingly living, breathing "beings."

ADDITIONAL HIGHLIGHTS:

"When It’s Done: The Making of a Chef" book signing and tasting with author and chef Gretchen Hanson, an award-winning chef and restaurateur from the former Hobos Restaurant and Bar.
