Works on display interconnect in areas that transcend the artists studio practices by speaking about feelings of aspirations, belonging, displacement and power, as well as women’s agency in domestic spaces. Artists featured are: Rashwan Abdelbaki (Syria), Chantal Feitosa (NYC/Brazil), Kyung-jin Kim (NYC/South Korea), Cansu Korkmaz (NYC/Turkey), and Angélica Maria Millán Lozano (NYC/Colombia).
This exhibition is curated by the RU alumna curator Luciana Solano and graciously hosted by Equity Gallery.
