How do we find potential in a present shaped by legacies of oppression and systemic racism? The artists gathered here—who come from divergent backgrounds and employ a range of forms and materials—share a strong affinity in daring to reimagine history.
These works, made in the last ten years, address historical traumas and their present-day echoes or make space to imagine a more hopeful future rooted in multiplicity and reciprocity. Examining the urgent, enduring issues of our time, they raise questions that resist easy answers.
