“Every generation confronts the task of choosing its past.
Inheritances are chosen as much as they are passed on.”
to REFLECT (2022)
is a group exhibition that explores the visible and invisible layers
of identity in order to process, synthesize and complicate narratives
of race, power, representation, and belonging. The historical archive,
oral history, lived experience and the body are rooted at the core of
each of these narratives.
Wayfinding through the past and present makes one thing abundantly
clear: the importance of illuminating what has been lost in order to
complicate the present.
This gathering of works is the culmination of the research,
conversations, readings and experiences that have been conducted as
part of The Baltimore Course: Blackness as a Portal. Within this
offering of explorations, we analyze the structures that inform and
problematize the complexities of Blackness, Whiteness, Latina/o/x.
Join us as we continue to question:
How we create and participate in radical ways of seeing
How bodies respond to and are affected by lived experiences
How we create space for marginalized stories amongst perceived
