From the Cedars Union:
“The Cedars Union, a nonprofit art incubator, opens Whereabouts, its second exhibition in its 200 square foot pop-up space S14. The show explores the ways in which people connect to places with artworks that bring together nature, culture, and history, highlighting how environment actively shapes identity. Accompanying members’ work is an interactive piece inviting visitors to tell their own place-based story through the use of maps and stickers. The color-coded stickers, attached to questions such as “Where are you from?” and “Where do you miss?” allow the viewer to add their life’s journey to the exhibition.
S14 is located within The Cedars Union Studio Hall in the studio formerly filled by Cohort 2 member Michelle Inez Hinojosa who left the incubator program early to pursue her MFA at University of Michigan. Between July and December of 2021 three shows will be installed in the space, each featuring member artwork and curated by a member-led curatorial committee.
This exhibition was curated by Cedars Union members Laura J. Lawson, Catherine Cornelius, Lisa Horlander, and Brantly Sheffield. Participating artists include:
Laura J. Lawson
The exhibition will be open to the public on Saturday, September 11 from 6 – 9 pm in conjunction with The MAC’s HYPERLOCAL II, a show of The Cedars Union Cohort 2 artists, curated by Jordan Roth. To see the show outside of the opening, please make an appointment by scheduling a tour on our website, or via this link. Tours must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance.
