The Cary Leibowitz: Museum Show exhibition presents nearly 350 works of paintings, fabric works, ceramics, banners, documentations, photography, texts, of Cary Leibowitz from 1987 to now. Leibowitz became known around the 1990s because of his bold, blunt, bright, and comical text based art. In his art, he explores and expresses his perspective on being gay and Jewish.

The Broadcasting: EAI exhibition presents an intergenerational group of artists expressing their views on public access of television to social media. The show features works of media art, installation, screenings and a series of live events through various displays by the artists: Robert Beck, Tony Cokes, Ulysses Jenkins, JODI, Shigeko Kubota, Kristin Lucas, and TVTV. The exhibition will focus on how artists interpret broadcasting.
