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.
1:00–5:00 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
1:00–8:00 p.m., Thursday
The galleries are closed Sunday, Monday, and during college breaks.
Please note: due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the galleries are only open to the Wheaton campus community. All of our programing will be provided virtually as well.
