Brooklyn quartet Small Black have announced that they will host a new art exhibition titled Limits of Desire. Exploring the themes of their upcoming album of the same name, the exhibition will open May 10 at New York’s 7 Dunham Gallery with an after-party DJ set by the band from 10-11 p.m.

Curated in collaboration with Lindsay Aveilhé, an Independent Curator and the Research Associate for the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonnée, the gallery will consist of works in various media by 17 artists, including frequent band collaborators like Morgan Blair who created the art for the group’s first two albums, Dan Baker who runs lights for the band’s live performances, and Agnes Thor who has frequently photographed the band.

Aveilhé says, “Inspired by the title track, Limits of Desire gathers artists whose work confronts or responds to the arbitrary framework of wants or desires upon which we exist, as well as the ways in which we either feel restricted by that framework or we seek to create self-imposed limitations. Each artists presents a unique approach to the theme as manifested through their artistic process, their relationship with materials and in their treatment of subject matter.”

Small Black’s album Limits of Desire comes out May 14.
