Susan Cianciolo is a community-based joiner. In a new dual gallery exhibition (at Bridget Donahue Gallery in New York and at Modern Art in London) the fashion designer-artist carefully stitches together textile patches, constructs wooden shelters, and puts together beautifully presented boxes filled with personal items. At Bridget Donahue, Cianciolo built a prayer room, a café, and a library where visitors are invited to ponder spiritual, nutritional and cerebral questions. Several public workshops involving crafts, food, and planting invite the public to engage with art that is civic, communal, and collective instead of market-driven, remote, and presumptuous. At Bridget Donahue through December 3.
