Join this virtual exhibit by University of the Pacific student curators. Enjoy selected work from an open call addressing social and political discourses stimulated by the global crises of 2020. Thirty-one artists at all stages of their careers and from across the US contributed work focused on their hopes for an end to the collective traumas of injustice, racism, discrimination, and climate destruction.
Artists bravely confront systemic disadvantages with camera, paintbrush, and pencil as swords. They also make the best of virtual opportunities to communicate messages of hope and to challenge us to create a more just and equal society. The forty-six pieces in the show include documentary photography, photomontage, painting, drawing, collage, sculpture and video.
Artists address issues of identity - Black Lives Matter features prominently - from painful experiences of constraint to proposing new ways of being free and genuine self-care. Tackling historic iniquity and honoring significant influences, they point to futures diverse and deeply imagined.
