“Reflected Visions”

This was an entirely different exhibition before George Floyd was killed at the hands of police violence, but the systems that built his murder were already in place for hundreds of years and the artists in this show had long been reflecting on the violence of oppression-a world full of names, bodies, cultures and land stolen at the hands of white supremacy. A powerful function of art is its ability to reflect the world back at itself. Where do you find yourself in the world, in these uprisings, amongst worlds of Black and Brown liberation?

Melissa Alcena

These are images I have taken of a family friend on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas. His name is Zack and the name Eleuthera derives from the Greek word meaning freedom. I felt it was apt to include a set of portraits of a black man on an island named after the main thing black people in the United States and around the world have been fighting so fucking hard to achieve; a true sense of freedom.

“Nu Dem” traces Europe's closed borders in the spring of 2016, confronting the dissonance between a vision of freedom and the fact of its denial.

These pieces are about the miraculous rhythm of chaos, the wonder of physical touch and being witnessed as a whole person. They're about the absence of binaries and the mess/stillness/clarity that arrives after its banishment. They are about witnessing and noticing, witnessing and noticing.
