Opening Reception: Thursday, March 19, 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: March 19 – May 2, 2009

Houston-based artist Jamal Cyrus’ work examines spaces between radical socio-political movements and untold histories. In Winners Have Yet To Be Announced, Cyrus presents a new series of drawings, sculptures, and videos that use Palmer Hayden’s seminal social realist painting The Janitor Who Paints (1937) as a point of departure. Evocatively reworking the symbolic and political traditions in Hayden’s painting, Cyrus explores the frequent slippages between the ordinary and the metaphysical. Exhibition curated by Rashida Bumbray

This exhibition is made possible with generous support from the Dedalus Foundation, Inc., and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
