Fri 8/18 @ 6-9PM
It’s time for SPACES Gallery’s first fall season in its new Hingetown home. And as usual, that means the debut of three new shows. One of them is a newly commissioned video essay by José Carlos Teixeira called On Exile that explores the refugee experience. In interviews with middle Eastern and African Muslims, the artist seeks to restore the voices of actual refugees to the center of this incendiary discussion.
URe:AD Press (United Re:Public of the African Diaspora), a print- and media collective based in New York City and Portland, Oregon, is doing a SWAP residency at SPACES to put together a video exchange program featuring messages of love, unity and empowerment from the African diaspora. And SPACES’ Marilyn Ladd-Simmons has put together a series of videos by three artists in the Vault space, which deal with “racially motivated violence, identity, and gentrification.”
All three shows open with a reception Fri 8/18 @ 6-9pm and remain on view through Fri 10/13. It’s free and open to the public.
