Exhibition Description

When I was approached by the good folks at White Columns about their interest in me “curating” their artists’ registry, my immediate reaction was to smile and I think today feels good!

What an immense privilege. For some years now, I’ve been witnessing a plethora of outstanding and not conventional art exhibitions at this historical and pioneering space. Therefore, it was a true honor to be asked to do this.

I fully immersed myself into the registry. The vast amount of names that exist inside this registry is something to admire. It felt like I was given the key to a treasure chest, filled with an array of precious artifacts.

Some of the artists’ statements moved me deeply and kept me thinking.

Here are the 52 artists that comprise this exhibition. Many of them working in different backgrounds, practices, and mediums. This exhibition is the fourteenth in a series of online exhibitions.

Thanks to the White Columns’ team: Matthew, Brittany, Erin, Anne.

“I encountered fear. That fear led to learning. Found challenges. When I wanted to execute things on my terms, challenges kept reappearing. In that same process, I found personal growth and the ability to recognize it, that’s the most amazing thing. In my toughest month, I found a piece of art that calmed me down. The subject in it went through my body. It gave me some kind of new hope. Some kind of peace. The reassurance I needed and the trust that the things that are meant for me, are for me, and I don’t need to force anything. Having everything around me stop, helped me recognize that.”

Thanks Ismael, Jorge, Rebecca, Sue.
