My Magic Carpet includes Siona Benjamin’s newest and very inspired paintings, photographs and constructions, and welcomes back Siona from a four month trip to India on a Fulbright Fellowship.

The centerpiece of our exhibit is Benjamin’s “Magic Carpet.” Her new installation represents the culmination of her pilgrimage from early childhood to the present day. It hints at a fable she loved as a child about a camel who on a cold night cleverly induces his Arab master to move out of his tent so that he could take his place and keep warm. In the Flomenhaft Gallery Benjamin has created a spectacular tent with a carpet woven in India based on one of her paintings. On the ceiling looms the camel.

The exhibition will run from├é┬áSeptember 15 – November 5, 2011
