Get Lifted!
Karma, 22 East 2nd Street
18 August–2 October 2021

Hard times can bring forth transformation. Curated by Hilton Als, Get Lifted! is an examination of the celebration that follows confinement and an homage to the artistic process that helps us articulate the changes we desire.

Get Lifted! draws from the Greek ekstasis, or the ecstasy of transcending beyond known forms. The group exhibition gathers artists from Diane Arbus to Howardena Pindell, Peter Hujar, and Reggie Burrows Hodges and features unbound bodies reclaiming physical desire, political freedom, and ecclesiastical belief.
