About the Event
The exhibition reveals a pursuit of a sense of connection to something larger — to history, to cultural heritage, to traditional notions of artmaking — and sometimes a desire to break from it.
Curated by Niama Safia Sandy, the exhibition explores recent breakthroughs of the artists’ respective practices over the last year-and-a-half. The pandemic shifted our understanding of our concept of time, ourselves, our place in the world and the systems we have built as vehicles to navigate it all. The works demonstrate not only the artists’ intense relationship to their practice, but also their own radical self-exploration and acceptance of themselves as agents of change in the world during this time of immense shifting and reflection.
