In the Galleries: Creating objects of power

There are some expansive works in Cross MacKenzie Gallery’s new group exhibition, but that doesn’t directly explain why the show is called “Space.” The title refers to Cross MacKenzie’s new Georgetown quarters, which are much larger than its previous Dupont Circle digs. (The storefront used to house Heiner Gallery, whose proprietor relocated to Connecticut.) There’s room for large canvases and an example of Walter McConnell’s altar-like assemblages of kitsch ceramic figurines that dwarfs anything in the gallery’s 2013 McConnell show.
