Ian McMahon Exhibit

Ian McMahon received his MFA in Sculpture and Extended Media from Virginia Commonwealth University and his BFA in Ceramics from the New York State College of Ceramics, Alfred University. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards including the Jacob K. Javits Fellowship; a New York Foundation of the Arts Artist Fellowship; and the Virginia Groot Foundation Fellowship. From mobile tractor-trailers to abandoned warehouses and galleries, McMahon’s work confronts and transforms both unconventional and conventional spaces. His sculptures challenge the permanence of art and place through performative and material-focused temporal constructions. Currently living in Newburgh, New York he is also the co-founder and co-director of the Belfry, an artist-run exhibition venue. McMahon’s work has been shown both nationally and internationally at venues including Crane Arts, Philadelphia; The Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland; Pierogi Boiler Room, New York; G-Fine Arts, Washington, D.C.; Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts, Omaha; Suyama Space, Seattle; T & H Gallery, Boston, Tang Contemporary, Beijing, China; Practice Gallery, Philadelphia, PA; DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA; among others.

Antonín Dvořák Selections from Cypresses

Lembit Beecher  These Memories May Be True

Rhiannon Giddens At the Purchaser’s Option

Jean Sibelius String Quartet,  “Voces Intimae”

Komitas Vartabed Armenian Folk Songs (selections)

Each selection  of the program is used to carefully  craft a heartfelt letter addressed to the space deeply nestled within our hearts, minds, and memories  we call “home.” Intimate love songs by Dvořák (arranged for string quartet) and the nostalgic, soulful folk songs by Armenian composer Komitas Vartabed serve as  bookends for the program, each containing a deep expression of homeland. Beecher’s These Memories May Be True was inspired by fragments of Estonian culture, songs and stories passed down to him by his grandmother that create, according to the composer, a “sense of something beautiful that has been lost in the wash of time.” Rhiannon Giddens depicts the  visceral tragedy of a young woman and her child being sold as slaves in her work “At the Purchaser’s Option,” and is juxtaposed by Sibelius’ expression of psychological anguish and longing for serenity in “Voces Intimae.”

Aizuri Quartet: Emma Frucht, violin • Miho Saegusa, violin • Ayane Kozasa, viola • Karen Ouzounizan, cello
