Lives Between group show Kadist San Fransisco

Silent Among Us video 2008 at Lives Between 

Artists: Pawel Kruk, Dani Gal, Runo Lagomarsino, Dana Levy, Aslan Gaisumov, Elham Rokni, Enrique Ramirez, Otobong Nkanga, Clarissa Tossin

The exhibition begins with a recognition of the growing number of international artists working and living between two places. Artists who were born in one country and, for a variety of reasons, have crossed oceans and borders to live in another. Because of this transition, their artistic practice and cultural identity is caught in tension between their country of residence and country of origin.

Exhibition co-curated by Joseph del Pesco and Sergio Edelsztein (Director, Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv)

Surface Unrest MIYAKO YOSHINAGA GALLERY 547 W 27th St, 204, NYC

Surface Unrest is a group exhibition featuring works by four emerging/midcareer artists Dana Levy, Taro Masushio, Anh Thuy Nguyen, and Margeaux Walter. The show is curated by Alice Yinzi Yi.

In Dana Levy‘s Intrusions: A Ghost From The Future (2014), a video of a present-day public space in a historical mansion is projected onto four vintage photographs of the same space once inhabited by Mark Twain, Arturo Toscanini, and other distinguished intellectuals. The juxtaposition of the original rooms and the present space illuminate the layers of space and time.  In this theatrical setting, a ghostlike female (the artist herself) appears as an intruder from the future and gradually meets the past by touching the age-old walls, windows, mantles, etc.

Conversations From The Edge – School of Art Institue Chicago

Impermanent Display Conversations From The Edge- School of Art Institue Chicago

Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St. Chicago

Tel Aviv–born, New York–based artist Dana Levy is known for her symbolically resonant studies of art museums, natural history collections, and other sites of preservation. Her careful choreography meditates on the political and environmental histories that undergird their display, often highlighting processes of migration and displacement. She presents a selection of works shot at the Mazor Mausoleum archaeological site in Petah Tikva, Israel; Maison de l’Armateur in Le Havre, France; and Invertebrate Zoology department of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, PA, in addition to a series of new films created as part of a residency in the Everglades National Park. Presented in collaboration with the Video Data Bank.
