Brochure available with an essay by exhibition curator Sandra Q. Firmin.


New York-based artist Saya Woolfalk will be in residence for six weeks working on an installment of her ongoing investigations into No Place, a Technicolor society of lush abundance that Woolfalk depicts in performance, video, and sculptural installations. Her alchemical process transforms detritus of our consumer civilization into polychromatic totems and bodysuits sprouting bulbous forms that blend with the vibrant landscape of her invention. She invites us to make a journey to No Place and witness its androgynous inhabitants enact empathetic explorations of self and other as a form of creative expression.

Woolfalk was in residence from February 26 through April 15, 2009, working on another chapter of No Place by transforming the UB Art Gallery into a stage and studio where the public can attend dress rehearsals and participate in artist-led workshops at scheduled times.
