IT BEGINS WITH KNOWING AND NOT KNOWING

In a world rife with injustice, pain, and uncertainty, this compelling group of artists engage with dimensions of spirituality, ceremony, dreams, and ritual to find greater meaning, rebuild ties with community, bolster a sense of self, or regain a sense of optimism. The Gallery is transformed by new and recent works including photographs, cyanotypes, textiles, sculptures, videos, ceramics, paintings, and performance.

Rebecca Bair translates her hair-washing rituals into a language of care in a series of cyanotypes featuring imprints of her hair extensions and curls. Xinwei Che invites visitors to slow down and consider geological time in her use of clay and performance. Patrick Cruz paints alternate realities based on his experimentations with past-life regression techniques. Zoë Kreye constructs ethereal immersive installations with textiles painted using her entire body. Ogheneofegor Obuwoma’s striking film delves into the difficulties of their experiences at a Catholic boarding school. Michelle Sound finds joy in the utilization of material practices like beadwork and drum making in the face of ongoing impacts of colonial violence on family members and Indigenous communities. Ximena Velázquez (aka La PosmoBaby) nurtures ties to her mother country Mexico through the cooking of her great grandmother’s recipes.
