 The exhibition of six New York contemporary artists, in dialogue with the gallery's African tribal sculptures, "Iconomania" seeks to examine the role of indigenous works with painters and sculptors making current art.  The contemporary artists, who come from a wide range of backgrounds, include Francis Acea, Liliya Lifanova, Noel Leon, Tyrone Mitchell, Aaron Philip, and Jill Nathanson. 

This exhibition has been extended through May 10, 2014.
