To Play in the Face of Certain Defeat
Jun 25 Oct 16 '22
To Play in the Face of Certain Defeat is a celebration of diversity and an urgent call to action around issues of racial marginalization. Artist Esmaa Mohamoud explores the ways in which Black bodies at once appear—and yet are rendered metaphorically invisible—within the spaces they navigate.

Transmissions is an exhibition exploring the production and passing on of knowledge through embodied processes. Embodied knowledge is learned and shared through actions and practices, and recognizes the material experiences related to the body. Each of us holds embodied knowledge that we access through life experience. It may show up as emotional or bodily responses, or as connections to the world around us that are hard to describe.
