Gallery Opening—To Scatter or Sow: Diaspora in Contemporary Art
September 10, 2021 @ 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Join us for an opening reception for our first exhibition of the academic year. To Scatter or Sow: Diaspora in Contemporary Art serves as a central event for Wheaton’s campus-wide initiative to consider Diasporas: Economies, Boundaries, and Kinship. The title of the show is taken from the Greek root of the word, and evokes not only the dispersal inherent in diaspora but also the potential for rich growth. Framing the multi-faceted idea of diasporas through the work of eight contemporary artists, the exhibition includes video, photography, painting, ceramics and text-based work. The exhibition will be presented both virtually and on the Wheaton campus.
The exhibition includes work by the following artists: Alina Bliumis, Chinatown Pretty: Andria Lo & Valerie Luu, Isabella Cruz-Chong, Patricia Encarnación, Michael Gac Levin, Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow, and Crys Yin
Please note: this opening event is open to the on-campus Wheaton Community only
