The University of Michigan enjoyed American Berserk in our Chelsea gallery space so much that the exhibit has been restaged at the University of Michigan's Institute for the Humanities. The curators made an engaging video for the show based on a studio visit via Skype. Valerie Hegarty: “American Berserk” is on view in Ann Arbor through December 20.
Gallery artist Jesse Krimes was just featured in an excellent segment on the PBS series Articulate with Jim Cotter.
Jesse Krimes' first solo gallery exhibition Marking Time in America - The Prison Works debuted in the gallery last year and received extensive critical praise.
His upcoming show of new sculptural works will open this October at Burning in Water in New York.
We are proud to announce Jesse Krimes will have previously unexhibited work at the Mmuseumm, in Lower Manhattan/Tribeca, NY. The exhibition will be up through the rest of the year.

Congratulations are due to gallery artist Jesse Krimes. Jesse is one of the inaugural recipients of the Right of Return fellowship, which provides funding for artists who were formerly incarcerated. The fellowship program is funded by the Open Philanthropy Foundation and the Soze Agency. Jesse was also instrumental in the founding of the program and will serve as a board member and on-going advisor.
Jesse's solo exhibition, "Purgatory," was just featured at the Georgetown University Museum of Art. His next solo exhibition with the gallery, "Leviathan," will open in October.
