Opening Reception: June 27, 2018 from 7 – 9pm

Muriel Stockdale takes inspiration from the culturally diverse landscape of Brooklyn to expand her series E Pluribus, an ongoing project since 2003. These mixed-media works – made from such materials as wood, cork, beads, grasses, and fabric – take the design of the United States flag, reimagined through the traditional fabrics and symbols of the many communities that comprise this nation. By reclaiming this oftentimes fraught symbol of patriotism for all those who contribute to the cultural fabric of this country and expressing it through a historically feminine craft, Stockdale infuses it with a sense of belonging and inclusivity.

E Pluribus – Out of Many begins with some of her original flags, representing the cultures of just a few of the communities situated within our borough, and culminates in a deconstructed, abstract installation of stars over a field of blue suspended from the ceiling. The star mobiles installed from the ceiling were created by sculptor Jim Hunter. Walking along the hallway, one can look up into this emblematic landscape, gazing into the figurative realm of one of our country’s most staunchly debated motifs. As an immigrant herself, Stockdale aims to celebrate the mosaic of expression that can be found by looking around and acknowledging our neighbors and the histories that they embody.
