Familiar Boundaries. Infinite Possibilities

Familiar Boundaries. Infinite Possibilities, a group exhibition of regional, national, and international contemporary artists, draws from themes that question society’s obsession with tradition, policing, consumption, and indulgence. This exhibition in the galleries of the August Wilson Center provides the featured artists the opportunity to create spaces of joy, safety, healing, and care for humanity and the environment.

Lizania Cruz, "Here & There"

For this installation, Lizania Cruz is exploring how crossing geopolitical boundaries has a significant effect on our identities; how we see ourselves and how others see us. She’s created a website, hereandthere.lizania.com to gather these stories. For the installation, selected statements will be printed and hung as flags monthly over the course of the installation from October 12th to March 25th, 2019.

Sean Jones: A Suite For Flying Girls

To capture the freedoms, joys, visions and dreams of those that are often set aside, unseen, misunderstood, and oppressed is a daunting task. Sean Jones seeks to sonically depict the work of Peju Alatise and her ability to do just that in her work, Flying Girls. By taking several images from Alatise’s exhibit, Jones seeks to express the triumphant vision that is evident in the work.
