THIS IS A RECURRING EVENT. CHECK CALENDAR FOR OTHER DATES

Mondays-Thursdays 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and Fridays 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Artist-provocateur Christy Roberts Berkowitz has built her own figure-skating rink complete with torturous obstacles to address global warming; planted thousands of poppy seeds as a guerrilla gardener to bring attention to public spaces; and hosted feminist wrestling matches. Her latest project is “The Distance Between the Grooves in My Fingerprint,” a solo exhibition in which she employs video, mixed media, text and installation. In the show, the artist-activist examines the ambiguities of her Russian-Jewish heritage while conflating themes that are both personal (her ambivalent relationship with her father) and universal (socialism, the patriarchy and gender). “I am 400 years of making art, but I am also 400 years of colonial violence,” she says.
