Basilica Hudson is proud to continue its Back Gallery artist in residency program through 2018. The series invites artists to explore the location itself as muse and to create work with the eclectic present and past of this river city as central inspiration.

Back Gallery Opening events are the culmination of artists spending time in and experiencing the space, before opening it up to the public.

Visits available by appointment. Please email info@basilicahudson.org

Joe Mama-Nitzberg’s Things Remembered

Sunday, October 7th, 2018

Things Remembered is Joe MamaNitzberg‘s first solo exhibition in the Hudson Valley. Comprised of new work of various media, it is a further exploration of Mama-Nitzberg’s recurring interests in Memory, Technology and Language. Combing such disparate elements and strategies as autobiography, music videos, painting, poetry, search engines etc., the artist deftly balances the comic and the tragic without seeming to privilege either.



Annie Bielski’s Clearance

Sunday, August 19, 2018

As an Artist In Residence Annie Bielski spent a week creating her latest body of work, Clearance, a collection of cargo t-shirts locally sourced from the shelves of Walgreens with hand-sewn organza pouches, purchased from a store that sells items for your store. All items are on permanent sale. She also presented a work in progress: a single-channel video, shot on her iPhone, involving local small-talk.
