One Another explores the multifaceted concept of language and its cultural weight

About

Incorporating the work of thirteen artists from Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Miami, One Another tackles how these artists use language as a tool, some by incorporating writing into their work, and others through the development of a visual codex that runs throughout their oeuvre.

As we live in an increasingly divided world and people with opposing points of view aren’t talking to one another and when they are they’re often being misunderstood. Art’s role has always been to initiate and further difficult but necessary conversation and the artists have been at the forefront of most of these conversations. Language is something that unites us however it is increasingly become a point of division — whether it’s minority groups asserting their right to end the use of harmful slurs, or politicians latching onto certain phrases to further their agendas.

While artistic movements like the Impressionists have use brushstrokes to further the conversation of their time, the artists proposed for this exhibition are all working directly with language in one form or another, providing a much needed forum for exploring our primary way of relating to one another.
