Bushel Presents “After the Fall Comes Love; or The Shadow Society,” a new exhibition curated by Haley Hughes

Written By Editor on 11/15/22 | 11/15/22

DELHI, NY— Bushel is pleased to present “After the Fall Comes Love; or The Shadow Society,” a multidisciplinary group exhibition, curated by artist Haley Hughes, that seeks to create, in common cause, a truthful space of love and reconciliation within our trepidatious era. The exhibition runs from November 19 through December 10, 2022, with an opening reception on Saturday, November 19, 5–8 pm. There will also be an open house with the artists on Sunday, November 20, 2–5 pm. The exhibition and events are free and open to the public. Bushel is located at 106 Main Street, ground floor, in Delhi, NY. 

This exhibition brings together thirty artists whom Hughes has collaborated with, or had the fortune to come to know through various arts communities over the last 20-plus years in New York City, California, and beyond: Dove Hays, Blanka Amezkua, Simon Lee, Angela Conant w/ text by Kendra Sullivan, J.Stoner Blackwell, Angel Favorite, Richie Adomako, Eugenia Chun, Monica Palma, William Powida, Julia Samuels, Zeljko McMullen, Kyp Malone, Tatiana Kronberg, Lilah Friedland, Holly Overton, Dan Wooldridge, Dominika Ksel, Eddy Segal, Tianna Kennedy, Muir Hughes, Hope Gangloff, Chris Fox, Alex Egan, Garrett Devoe, Erin O’Donnell, Jesse Karch, Julia Lee, and Haley Hughes. 

The artists in the exhibition address the existential questions of our time: What is a home? What is community? What responsibility do we have to the future, what kind of future? The curator Haley Hughes states, “There is a magic that lives in creating a place for people to feel held, grow, lighten, laugh, darken, and mourn collectively. In this show I wish to present a four-dimensional accounting of our time where art and care reside in LOVE and NOT capital!”

This exhibition is the third in a new series of Bushel-alumni-curated shows, proposed by Haley Hughes who had a solo exhibition in Bushel’s old space at 84 Main Street in Fall 2017. Bushel-alumni-curated shows are exhibitions and happenings proposed by artists who have exhibited at Bushel in the past, with a single constraint: to use the opportunity to invite or engage at least one other artist or maker who has not yet been part of a Bushel program. 

Born in Paradise, California, 1984, Haley Hughes is a self-taught artist whose paintings act as a psycho-historical archive as well as a call to action. The center of her philosophy and the aesthetic of her work is to address the crisis we face with immediacy, by assessing the state of our shared humanity by subjecting racial/social/economic and environmental injustice to humanist investigation. Hughes’ work has been exhibited in numerous venues including PS 122, Elizabeth Art Foundation Project Space, and Sunview Luncheonette, in New York City; Watermill Center on Long Island; and Scope Art Show in New York and Miami Beach, Florida. Her work has been reviewed in Art Forum and the Village Voice, and published in the NationWallpaper, and Huffington Post. Special commissions, acquisitions, and residencies have taken place at the Debt Collective, Public Bank, Oberlin College Allen Art Museum, and OverPass Projects.
