About Undercurrents

On view as part of Inner-City Arts Summer on 7th event, this group exhibition begins in what lies right beneath the surface. Our vulnerabilities, as individuals and communities, are an integral part of how we experience ourselves and those around us. This exhibition seeks to explore how we negotiate our position in the world, our self-presentation, how we see others, and how we think they see us.

This new era has left us both isolated and exposed, both in need of our networks and of re-learning how to communicate. Only by uncovering these complex junctures could we begin to recognize and name our weaknesses and build a stronger foundation for being together.


This in-person exhibition is open to members only. Images will be selected based on creativity, originality, and quality.
