Curated by Kija Lucas
Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 12:00 - 6:00PM by appointment only
Southern Exposure is pleased to reopen our gallery for viewing by appointment, with the exhibition Once Removed. Curated by artist and Southern Exposure Curatorial Councilmember Kija Lucas, Once Removed is an exhibition of work by artists who are incorporating traditional textile and movement techniques alongside new material strategies. Artists in this exhibition draw from their ancestral traditions as well as personal experiences to create works that explore tradition and belonging while living in an in-between space, weaving together quotidian materials and contemporary art practice with traditional craft techniques. The exhibition features textile based objects and installations.
The artists hail from diverse diasporas and draw on these individual experiences in their work. The pieces created for Once Removed explore the complexities of post-colonial diasporic identity, playing with the fleeting nature of memory and examining the ways in which traditional skills are shared, passed on, and reinvented in a digital age.
To view the exhibition, make an appointment here through calendly.
