This event is a part of We use our hands to support, a group show and multi-layered project visioned and gathered by Artist/Educator/Curator Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo, a member of Southern Exposure’s Curatorial Council. We use our hands to support is inspired by the strategies for collective practice that each of these artists hold in their practices. The exhibition presents newly commissioned installations by Amanda Curreri, Sam Vernon, Kimi Hanauer and Fronteristxs Collective, and is accompanied by a stack of risograph printed postcards designed by Ginger Brooks Takahashi. The stack will be sent out via United States Postal Service throughout the course of the show. Combined, these layers of engagement will be a tool for ongoing learning and interaction with the work. The gallery will be open by appointment from May 29–July 3, 2021.
