In a darkened room on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Donna Dennis’s sculptures are glowing from within: in not-quite-large-enough tourist cabins, hotels and disembodied porches, lights illuminate faded wallpaper and clapboard siding, suggesting an eerily silent evening on a long-lost vacation. The sculptures, which Dennis made from the early 1970s to the 1990s, represent “stopping places on the journey through life,” as the gallery puts it. With summer on the horizon but winter very much lingering in New York City, a visit to this artist-run space offers a peaceful respite from contemporary reality. Catch it before the lights go back on on April 28th.
