How do we find potential in a conflicted present informed by legacies of oppression? Made within the last 10 years, the work gathered here suggests that despite divergent backgrounds and approaches, these artists share a strong affinity in daring to reimagine history. Employing a range of forms and materials, some of these works address historical traumas and their present-day echoes, while others imagine a more hopeful future rooted in multiplicity and diversity. Purposefully open-ended, this grouping of works refuses a tidy summation of the art of our time.
