LINEAGE: 6 NEW YORK AND NORTHEASTERN ARTISTS ASSOCIATED WITH PRATT AND AMHERST
Curated by Sofia Zu'bi and Kenlontae Turner with John Lee Matney
Lineage showcases the vibrant artwork of six artists exploring the complex nature of cultural identity, reality, and the human condition. From drawings, painting, and mixed media, these artists bring to life their very real truths, providing unique, and sometimes universal, observations. From depictions of cultural icons, to finding the beauty in the ordinary, these artists exemplify why art is vital in bridging the gaps between seemingly different worlds.
Caroline Absher , Asif Hoque, Jennifer Meridian, Nicole Mouriño, Andrew Shears, Sofia Zu'bi
