6. Ann Shelton: Jane Says
Denny Dimin Gallery
The gallery inaugurates its new Tribeca space—nearly the double the size of its Lower East Side location—with the first U.S. exhibition of floral photographs by New Zealand photographer Ann Shelton. She arranges her botanical compositions by employing the Japanese tradition of Ikebana (“making flowers alive”), which calls for plant specimens that women have historically used to control their fertility. The reception will feature a live performance that explores the same themes as “Jane Says” titled The Physical Garden.
Where: Denny Dimin Gallery, 39 Lispenard Street
When: Opening reception: Thursday, April 18, 6–8 p.m. with a live performance at 7 p.m.; on view through May 19
