About Town

N. Dash

The Aldrich will stage the first East Coast museum exhibition of artist N. Dash (b. 1980). N. Dash’s work spans painting, sculpture, photography and drawing and employs both natural and manmade materials, including pigments, adobe/ mud, jute, graphite, fabric, polystyrene, and found objects. Across these materials, the artist’s inimitable approach seeks to both record sensory and informational capacities of touch and render typically unseen conduits of energy: ecological, architectural, and corporeal. The Aldrich presentation will debut a new body of paintings that exhibit persistent and new directions. The artist’s first monograph will accompany the exhibition and will include an essay by Amy Smith-Stewart, the exhibition’s curator.

The Normal Heart

The story of a city in denial, Larry Kramer's "The Normal Heart" unfolds like a real-life political thriller as a tight-knit group of friends refuses to let doctors, politicians and the press bury the truth of an unspoken epidemic behind a wall of silence. A quarter century after it was written, this outrageous, unflinching, and totally unforgettable look at the sexual politics of New York during the AIDS crisis remains one of the theatre's most powerful evenings ever.
