Curator Tracie D. Hall has assembled works by over 30 artists, showcasing this critical survey of the cumulative impact of APL/CSRPC’s AIR program. The show will feature a wide range of multimedia works, panels, and performances from the program’s alumni including Brandon Breaux, Ayana Contreras, Krista Franklin, Faheem Majeed, Amina Ross, Anna Martine Whitehead, and many more.
Playing on the multiple meanings of light: to make things visible, to illuminate or ignite, and something that is easily carried—July 8 will ignite a summer of All That Light companion programming. We invite you to join virtual and in-person events further exploring the creative production and practices of the artists who participated in the first ten years of the residency program.
