Exhibition closing, The Sculpture Shoppe, Ithaca Mall

Sunday, May 29, 2022

Ithaca Mall 40 Catherwood Road Ithaca, NY 14850

The Sculpture Shoppe will close on May 29 with a 6pm performance by Medusa. All are welcome!

Medusa is a nonbinary ‘revenge-pop’ musician based in Buffalo, New York. Their signature production - described by Soundriv as “a breakthrough collection of LGBTQ hymns,” and by Bucketlist as “the most inventive [expletive] music we’ve heard in a long time” - often features unconventional sounds like wolf howls and cheerleading chants. Medusa describes their style as “by any means necessary,” then makes good on the promise.

The Sculpture Shoppe at Ithaca Mall is an exhibition of plaster reproductions of classical Greco-Roman art from the Cornell Cast Collection and responses to cast culture and classical art by contemporary artists and thinkers. The exhibition will take place from May 5-29, 2022, in a former retail space at the Ithaca Mall (next to the Food Court). By bringing classical art and contemporary responses into an unexpected context through the venue of the near-abandoned shopping mall, we hope to draw the public into conversations about the history, problematics, and mutability of the “western canon”.

Opening times are Wednesdays and Thursdays 4:00-8:00 PM and Saturday and Sunday 12:00-5:00 PM, starting May 5 until May 29.

Artists featured:

Katherine Akey, Daniel G. Andújar and Richard Fletcher (Minus Plato), Sherwin Banfield, Laurie Berenhaus, WonJung Choi, Jeanne Ciravolo, Dan Daly, Benjamin Entner, Pablo Garcia-Lopez, Gemelxs VS, William E.
