Joyce Majiski: North of Myth

North of Myth examines the space between romanticized, nostalgic ideas of the north and the lived experience of northerners. Through monoprints, drawings, photography and installation Majiski explores what links the circumpolar north, such as  latitude, ecosystems, remoteness and a certain resilient fragility.

Zea Morvitz: ​Alchemy of Collaboration

California based artist Zea Morvitz presents a series of drawings, many in collaboration with Joyce Majiski, and many from her Alchemical Emblem book project. This latest series is inspired by the complicated and alluringly mysterious images of Alchemy. Morvitz’s drawings are injected with her lyrical point of view and love of correspondence be it from the often secretive 15th and 16th century Alchemical volumes or through exchanging ideas and postcards with fellow artists.
