The ways in which artists in this exhibition are thinking critically about materials, history(ies), social dynamics, and much more, is truly a map for how our current reality unfolds. This exhibition is a marker of the end of one chapter for this group of thinkers and makers, and the start of a bold and promising movement forward for all of us.Jasmine Wahi, Curator
