Jessica Valoris' exhibition is "inspired by elements of the xigga afro-philo-cosmology, a branch of knowledge and way of being that explores the truths of our origins, presence and universe through a Black cultural lens. Through interactive “phone booths” museum patrons can send and receive messages, listen to mantra, record affirmations and hear soundbites celebrating the legacy and of black radical voices."

Daniel Blagg &David Leonard: Kindred Spirits

February 25 through April 8, 2017

Both artists ask through their work if the modifications we make to our landscape are for better or worse."
