Art LINDSAY PACKER: CALL AND RESPONSE: DEPTH OF FIELD WITH MELANIE MAAR Lindsay Packer premieres Depth of Field, her first commissioned work as an Issue Artist-In-Residence. Collaborating with dancer and choreographer Melanie Maar, the artists use light, color, repetition, movement & the reverberations that emanate from their movements to define and redefine the space around them. When: Thursday, April 18th, 8 p.m. Where: Cobble Hill/Issue Project Room (22 Boerum Place)

DIGITAL FAIRYTALES: VENGEANCE IS MINE When one encounters the term “Vengeance,” it is with excitement, suspicion and dread. For vengeance to exist, there must be a prior

perception of victimhood, a grievance. The scale of which is determined by the protagonist, but the roles can quickly be flipped. And flipped and flipped again. The chain of vengeance can go on and on and, unless broken, lead to ever escalating levels of calamity. When: Through April 30th Where: DUMBO/Made in NY Media Center (30 John Street)

A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING AND EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE/SHADOW LAKE Smack Mellon announces two solo exhibitions, Katie Bell: A Place for Everything and Everything in Its Place and Austin Ballard: Shadow Lake. Both artists create work inspired by the designed and built environment but adopt their own unique approaches. Katie Bell takes discarded and readymade objects to construct immense assemblages that match the industrial scale


of Smack Mellon’s building. Austin Ballard, on the other hand, turns his focus onto household objects, specifically light fixtures and lampshades, to create a more intimate setting that resembles a suburban domestic interior. In both of these projects, however, the artists call attention to the way that architecture and design objects shape — whether dramatically or subtly —how we see and respond to the world. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through April 21st, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Smack Mellon (92 Plymouth Street)

It has other definitions though from mathematical use, such as incapable of being the root of an algebraic equation with rational coefficients, (π for example), or as relating to an experience determined by the mind’s makeup. Six artists in this exhibit take on different approaches to that definition through their individual styles of abstraction, be that from their intuitive creative approaches to inspiration from mathematical equations.

LEA THOMAS– CURRENTS A drop of dark blue

Kitchen Still Lifes by Jan Groover will be on exhibit at Janet Borden through May 11th. appears, its stain spreading over the surface. Tendrils stretch across, their circuits entwining and dispersing, carving lucid pathways in their wake. The deepest blue requires more than just one application, it is a multitude of layers blended into one another, with slightly different circumstances and results each time, as sapphire streams ebb and flow concurrently. The azure currents of time, energy, and memory upwell and merge in union. Lea Thomas applies this aesthetic philosophy in her practice, creating a pool of the deepest blue for her hand-woven textiles. With a lineage harkening back to the traditional use of Japanese indigo in its process and symbolism, Thomas’s work echoes the motion of her predecessors, diving far under the waves of deep time. As the fibers submerge
