New Exhibition

Reflection, Refraction, Reaction

Opens Today

October 25 – December 3

The artists in this exhibition find common threads through feminist frameworks: their works and practices, both individual and collaborative, prioritize communication, collaboration, and care although each may manifest in wildly different ways. Whether through a respect for the distinct properties of materials as shown in sculptural and installation work, to the use of dialogue and interaction in performative work, to works on paper developed in meditative moments, to gazes and spaces documented photographically, and to zines crowdsourced to tell a fuller story and to initiate political change, the artists offer exhibition participants moments of consideration and conversation, moments of directional shifts, and moments of mutual action to create something new: reflection, refraction, reaction.
