Upcoming Events

Alix Pearlstein: GRASS

Art Show
Alix Pearlstein is a New York-based artist whose videos and performances bring together groups of actors to explore both scripted and improvised movements and dialogue. The results possess a sense of purpose and restraint as the camera and participating bodies negotiate shared space. We invited Pearlstein to visit Mill Ridge Farm, a family business in Lexington with a 50-year commitment to the breeding, care, and cultivation of thoroughbreds. This May, over three consecutive days in a single field, she filmed the same group of mares and foals. Her approach to filming emerged through prolonged observation of the horses and their daily routines. She came to consider the field as a stage and the horses as actors, albeit ones that she could not exactly direct. GRASS is a 30-minute film projection.

Ralph Eugene Meatyard: Stages for Being

Art Show, Photography
Ralph Eugene Meatyard (1925 – 1972) moved to Lexington in 1950 and developed a passion for photography along with his career as an optician. Over the next two decades, he would craft the enigmatic images that would assure him a place in the history of the medium. He used masks, dolls, and found objects as unsettling props; mined architectural detail for abstract compositional elements; and set the mood with evocative natural lighting. Stages for Being—the largest exhibition of Meatyard’s work ever shown in his adopted hometown—celebrates his life and legacy with 100 rare, vintage prints.

Alix Pearlstein: GRASS

Art Show
Alix Pearlstein is a New York-based artist whose videos and performances bring together groups of actors to explore both scripted and improvised movements and dialogue. The results possess a sense of purpose and restraint as the camera and participating bodies negotiate shared space. We invited Pearlstein to visit Mill Ridge Farm, a family business in Lexington with a 50-year commitment to the breeding, care, and cultivation of thoroughbreds. This May, over three consecutive days in a single field, she filmed the same group of mares and foals. Her approach to filming emerged through prolonged observation of the horses and their daily routines. She came to consider the field as a stage and the horses as actors, albeit ones that she could not exactly direct. GRASS is a 30-minute film projection.

Ralph Eugene Meatyard: Stages for Being

Art Show, Photography
Ralph Eugene Meatyard (1925 – 1972) moved to Lexington in 1950 and developed a passion for photography along with his career as an optician. Over the next two decades, he would craft the enigmatic images that would assure him a place in the history of the medium. He used masks, dolls, and found objects as unsettling props; mined architectural detail for abstract compositional elements; and set the mood with evocative natural lighting. Stages for Being—the largest exhibition of Meatyard’s work ever shown in his adopted hometown—celebrates his life and legacy with 100 rare, vintage prints.

Ralph Eugene Meatyard (1925 – 1972) moved to Lexington in 1950 and developed a passion for photography along with his career as an optician. Over the next two decades, he would craft the enigmatic images that would assure him a place in the history of the medium. He used masks, dolls, and found objects as unsettling props; mined architectural detail for abstract compositional elements; and set the mood with evocative natural lighting. Stages for Being—the largest exhibition of Meatyard’s work ever shown in his adopted hometown—celebrates his life and legacy with 100 rare, vintage prints.

Alix Pearlstein: GRASS

Art Show
Alix Pearlstein is a New York-based artist whose videos and performances bring together groups of actors to explore both scripted and improvised movements and dialogue. The results possess a sense of purpose and restraint as the camera and participating bodies negotiate shared space. We invited Pearlstein to visit Mill Ridge Farm, a family business in Lexington with a 50-year commitment to the breeding, care, and cultivation of thoroughbreds. This May, over three consecutive days in a single field, she filmed the same group of mares and foals. Her approach to filming emerged through prolonged observation of the horses and their daily routines. She came to consider the field as a stage and the horses as actors, albeit ones that she could not exactly direct. GRASS is a 30-minute film projection.
