Claudia DeMonte and Edwin McGowin: Binomial
DeMonte’s artistic output reflects not only her cosmopolitan view of the world but also her sense of place within it. Ed McGowin, with whom DeMonte has shared her travels and her life for more than four decades, is equally interested in notions of the self and interpersonal dynamics, including manipulation, corruption, exploitation, and greed. He explored these intertwined threads in his famed Name Change project (1970 and later), in which McGowin legally changed his name—and his aesthetic modality—twelve separate times.

Guest Curator Dr. Carol Damian.
Walled Cities features nine large-format circular paintings that reference the artist’s fascination with city plans. Inspired by the Havana of his youth, the Medieval European cities to which he has traveled extensively as an adult, and his abiding interest in symbolic cosmology and origin stories, Estévez has created in this body of new work personal maps of the human mind influenced by ancient cartography.
