Fri 1/17-Fri 3/13
Check out the latest batch of shows at SPACES when it kicks off 2020 with an opening reception for its winter exhibitions Fri 1/7 @ 6-9pm.
Winter artist-in-residence Jessica Segall from Brooklyn is creating a installation called 100 Years, All New People, constructed from materials gathered at U.S. borders where asylum seekers have eluded immigration authorities. It addresses the incoherent and punitive immigration “policies” of the current administration.
Cleveland-based Kat Burdine “sabotages modes of making to produce failed prints, and objects — investigating the consequences of socially assigned narratives and the ways we carry them,” according to the publicity for her show. She uses SPACES’ own Hingetown neighborhood as the backdrop for “Expected to Dance,” which features “communally defined signifiers to present print, sculpture and haptic strategies that wrestle with the confinement of queer narrative in an era of inclusion and visibility.”
Finally, Jordon Wong and Purple Films are joining forces to present “Bad Luck, Noodles, and More,” a series of animated illustrations that incorporate his Asian-American background and sense of humor in a display in the front window of SPACES.
Meet the artists and enjoy some refreshments at the opening, which is free and open to all.
