"Genesis Belanger: Through the Eye of a Needle"

September 21, 2020 - May 9, 2021

Through the Eye of a Needle is the first major solo museum exhibition of New York-based artist Genesis Belanger (b. 1978), whose practice spans sculptures and tableaux, primarily composed out of porcelain, stoneware, and upholstery. Anthropomorphizing common household objects--lipsticks with wagging tongues, lamps with ladies' pearls, and tins with doey-eyed sardines, Belanger's methodology blends Surrealism and Pop art with a self-possessed feminism informed by a career inside the fashion and advertising industries. Debuting an entirely new body of work specially conceived for The Aldrich, Belanger will create her largest and most elaborate mise-en-scène to date: dozens of animated objects arranged on ghostly furnishings that suggest narratives about our anxiety afflicted present. The artist's first museum publication, featuring an essay by the exhibition's curator, Amy Smith-Stewart, will accompany the show.
