16. “Clarity Haynes: Altar-ed Bodies” at Denny Dimin Gallery
For her new show at Denny Dimin, Haynes hones in on the alter as a metaphor for change, the exchange of power, and a reclaiming of “domestic art.” In a series of still life paintings, she depicts her own ad hoc altars, each populated with homespun totems and quirky keepsakes cobbled together over the years. In an unexpected way, the canvases also complement the artist’s studies of torsos (new examples of which are also in the show).
Location: Denny Dimin Gallery, 39 Lispenard Street
