NEW YORK CITY, March 15 — This month at Gallery Xue / NYC we feature Agnes Sharple, Barnett Newman, and Vaneeesa Blaylock: three silent meditations on the ephemerality of life, hope, dreams, relationships. Three longful yearnings for some sort of transcendent, sublime peace. Spanning 49 years of sculpture and installation we are pleased to exhibit Barnett Newman’s 1963 masterpiece Broken Obelisk; Agnes Sharple’s 2011 installation Last Meal; and a new performance milieu from Vaneeesa Blaylock, Like a Prayer.

Blaylock will also be performing in the NYC space on Saturday, 17 March from 9am – Noon EDT.

We are presenting powerful, difficult beauty in the gallery this month. Do remember that you’re also welcome upstairs to use the treadmill desk and release some of that frustrated energy as you surf the web or explore online virtual worlds.
