Spend #EarthDay with Fernando Palma Rodríguez 🌎 Now on view, “In Ixtli in Yollotl, We the People“ features the artist’s robotic sculptures, which respond to issues facing indigenous communities in his native Mexico. Central to Palma Rodríguez’s practice is an emphasis on ancestral knowledge, both as an integral part of contemporary life and a way of shaping the future in the face of urgent environmental crises. #FernandoPalmaRodriguez

#GauriGill’s “Acts of Appearance” series mythologizes everyday life in Maharashtra, India. The artist asked members of the Adivasi community, renowned for their handmade papier-mâché masks of classical Indian deities and heroes, to reimagine the people, animals, and inanimate objects they live with as sacred characters. Her photos capture the masked community members while they carry out common village activities—bridging the gap between ritual and the mundane. Projects 108: Gauri Gill,” now on view.

Instagram meme master Bunny Michael (@bunnymichael) is bringing a performative take on their celebrated "Higher Self" project to the Spring Performance Festival on Sunday.
