Virtual Artist Talk II – Shiny Things

March 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Erica Mohan, Niki Lopez, Lizz Straight, and Marie Vickles for a virtual artist talk about the Shiny Things exhibition Thursday, March 30th from 7 – 8 pm moderated by Khaulah Naima Nuruddin. Learn about the artists’ processes behind their pieces in the show.

Shiny Things is presented in recognition and celebration of #nationalpoetrymonth. Exploring the intersections of distraction and attraction inherent to boldly asserting ourselves in a world that often prefers us to stay in the shadows, ten artists are anonymously paired, one visual and one literary, to create original work reckoning with what it means to shine–individually and collectively–across identities informed by intersections, contradictions, and communities.

All works presented are new and original, and the show reimagines the traditional ekphrasis by making the process reciprocal rather than one direction. The resulting work contributes to a conversation about thriving versus surviving and seeking brilliance rather than resigning to expectations and the status quo. Shiny Things is on view until April 29th.

Featuring BlacJak, Sheree L. Greer, Ciara Hendrix, Niki Lopez, Dara Mathis, Erica Mohan, Sharene Mullings, Khaulah Naima Nuruddin, Lizz Straight, and Marie Vickles.
