‘Vermin.me’ & You

Hammering. Chopping. Pushing. Plumbing. Adjusting. If you think its work, it is. Jamie Burmeister’s Vermin.me, 4-inch human-like sculptures in caricature and engaged in ordinary, everyday activities and drama-- are hard at it in the new exhibition Jamie Burmeister and Company at Modern Arts Midtown.  The Company includes not only Burmeister's vermin, but also other figurative works by Byron Anway, Alexandra...

Strike Slip is a series of manual installations that stretch across two entire galleries in the Bemis. The project began May 16 and will continue through August 31.
