I have two Emotional Baggage Carts included in this Online Exhibition Juried by Angelik Vizcarrondo-Laboy
About the Exhibition: The artists whose works are assembled all take the mantle of exploring the potential of multiple mediums at once. The possibilities opened by this project multiply wonderfully, as seen by the diversity of works on view, all of which find an expression of vitality through their mediums. Perhaps these artists working with mixed media are finding a way to reaffirm our bodily connection. They have a way of bringing out the physicality of their materials in the medium’s interactions, in divergent forms. We find surprising juxtapositions or forms springing out of their prior uses. Though in different ways, the works presented allude to the body: the presence of the artist’s hand in placing objects just so; suggestive forms; organic and inorganic decay; human detritus, and more.
The 20th year anniversary of the Newark Arts Festival 2021 is October 7 through 10, 2021.
My Middle Passage installation of 3 emotional baggage carts will be in the Newark Arts Headquarters at 609 Broadstreet, Newark NJ.
I plan to be at the Festival for the opening on Thursday October 7th and bopping around the festive that weekend. DM me if you want to link and gallery hop.
