Bailey Scieszka | Group Show | Benediction | Arlington

Friends Artspace is delighted to present Benediction, an exhibition that brings together the work of Anna Aagaard Jensen, Bailey Scieszka, Carl Durkow, Duyi Han, Lane Walkup, Malcolm Majer, Polina Miliou, and Trey Jones.

Since our inception, visitors have remarked that Friends evokes the feeling of visiting a chapel: meditative and serene with a steep gabled roof. In Benediction, we are leaning into the sense of a sacred space. With this framework, we have invited seven artists to create pairs of benches to be displayed across a center aisle. Here, benches are egalitarian and versatile; they invite people to sit communally without prescribing how many or in which direction. Bailey Scieszka has further adorned the space with her pop iconography, which gives a camp spin on religious portraiture.
