Nicholas Galanin's work is unapologetically critical of how western culture tokenizes indigenous objects and people. Made from a found totem pole intended for tourists, this installation deconstructs it in an attempt to reclaim lost meaning and context.
The installation is on view at City Art Space October 6, 2023 - February 18, 2024.

William Snyder's enthusiasm for photographing live music over the years has led to an impressive collection of images, capturing iconic performers from David Bowie to Amy Winehouse, from KISS on their first North American tour, to recent appearances by artists like Eddie Vedder, Joan Jett, and PINK. This show highlights some of the best shots from his almost 50-year career in photojournalism.
Graduate students in the Schools of Art and American Crafts present their thesis exhibitions in various media in two locations: City Art Space (downtown Rochester) and Bevier Gallery (RIT Campus). 2 of the 3 separate shows occur back-to-back at RIT City Art Space.
"A child of this city, Daniel Witkowski drew a line around Center City and said, 'Okay, here's the place, now let's see what is here.' This is a love letter to Rochester, and not the sprawling lawns of East Ave or the vistas from Cobb's Hill or the beach scenes of Charlotte. This is a love letter sent from the very heart of the city."
Near my upstate New York home and in my travels, I observe how landscapes have been transformed over time – particularly those on the fringes of cities. Most notably, I see small farms that sit on land that has now become too expensive for one family to own. In turn these farms are often swallowed up by developments or mono-crop agriculture. Our food continues to come to our tables from further away than it once did while we lose any lasting connections to its source. This Land illuminates the connections between various aspects of this common story.
