March 6 - 8, 2020
“Resight” includes the work of eight contemporary artists from Black, Latino, Caribbean, and LGBTQ backgrounds: Steven Baboun, Jesse Egner, Tere Garcia, Miguel Gonzalez, Janiuci Güntzel, Amanda Johnson, Anjelic Owens and, Adrian White. Their individual practices include works in photography, audio, video, installation, and sculpture.
As emerging artists and educators, we are both consciously and unwittingly exposed to the communal and political downfall of our society. The work created by these artists act as a collective visualization of internal and external oppression. They examine the role of the individual but also the community when attempting to generate conversation about contemporary hostilities. Resight brings together eight identities simultaneously developing ideas of the counter-self while moving against and decolonizing the conformity of the individual within society. In light of the upcoming 2020 election year, the timeliness of this show is imperative and undeniable. These emerging artists and educators work exclusively to recontextualize oppressive systems such as: history, race, education, queerness, capitalism/patriotism, and sexism.
