Drawing inspiration from a computer algorithm of the same name, Jesse Colin Jackson’s Marching Cubes projects use 3-D printing to make the virtual world physical. In the 1980s, researchers devised an algorithm for generating computer graphics from medical scan data, which featured an underlying language of faceted cubes. Jackson has translated this virtual procedure into sculptures, which he assembles from a modular set of 3-D printed components.

WHAT: Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents A New Subjectivity: Figurative Painting after 2000, an exhibition composed entirely of paintings by women that attempts to categorize Expressionism in new terms. Referencing cartoons, fashion spreads, and personal narratives, the artists address the fragmentation of individual subjectivity in a technological world. The new figuration is thereby performative, rather than prescriptive, and both the absurd and sincere approaches alike are embraced as subject matter by the artists in the exhibition.

Please join us at the MNN El Barrio Firehouse Film Club screening of Don't Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie), a powerful documentary by Director Mikaela Shwer, telling the gripping story of Angy Rivera, an immigrant who had two crucial secrets in her life. The first was that she was an undocumented child living with her mother and siblings in New York City for 19 years.
