Opening Sunday, November 12th, from 1PM - 3PM
Welcome Home: Creative Resistance, Belonging and Safe Spaces
Renowned artist Karen Finley who recently performed as part of Bruce Yonemoto’s critically acclaimed political film Far East of Eden paralleling the Japanese-American incarceration camps with today’s political climate. Finley invites artists to respond to themes within the exhibit with a counter narrative. Performances or rituals that create alternative spaces and dynamics that offer shelter, acceptance, and justice. The artistic focus will answer questions: How do artists respond to our urgent social concerns? Where do we begin or end and sustain our practice in these times? How do we participate in creative resistance and keep a sense of agency?
