Georgia Sagri becomes a sort of news tamer in Sunday Stroll Undone and Redone (2016), calling for empathy as she reorders and reanimates news items and images through a series of sculptures on view in The Eccentrics and a new performance. Sagri (born 1979 in Athens, Greece and lives in NYC) has had a solo exhibition at the Kunsthalle Basel in Switzerland (2014) and has participated in recent group exhibitions including the Istanbul Biennial SALTWATER: A History of Thought Forms (2015) and the Whitney Biennial (2012).

The Eccentrics performance program extends out of the works on view by four of the exhibiting artists. The performances are all new commissions.
