Cataclysm at ABC No Rio

ABC No Rio is proud to announce its next exhibition, Cataclysm, a virtual exhibition beginning on June 18 and running through July 31, 2021.

Cataclysm features work that explores catastrophe and calamity in the natural world and the social and political implications of such upheaval.

This virtual exhibition includes paintings by Sabra Booth inspired by the devastation wrought by Winter Storm Uri in Texas in early 2021; a series of mixed-media works by Linda Byrne on five endangered trees; a series of hand-embroidered works by Christina Freeman of four extinct species; several paintings from Christy Rupp’s catastrophozoic series on the impact of economic activity on the natural world; and several paintings from Joyce Yamada’s 1933/2017 series on white supremacy, Big Business, and environmental destruction.

Cataclysm is funded in part by the New York State Council on Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
