From the March 27, 2014 edition

Brooklyn-based artist Duke Riley will discuss his work and artistic practice and field questions from attendees.

Pieces from Riley’s latest series, “Trading with the Enemy,” include videos, paintings and drawings of homing pigeons Riley trained to fly from Havana to Florida carrying either cameras or Cuban cigars. “Trading with the Enemy” is designed to be complementary to the “Cuban Forever” exhibit currently on display at the Pizzuti Gallery.
