Opening Reception:

Apr 22 2016

Over the Wall is a group exhibition about love and other spaces of the imagination within systems and sites of oppression. The artists in Over the Wall reposition hope and imagination within the waiting, liminal spaces shaped by institutionalized racism, surveillance, and state power. At the center of each work is a focus on creating a space for intimacy within a dehumanizing system.

The group exhibition includes the Creative Capital-supported project, Mirror / Echo / Tilt: a collaborative project by Melanie Crean, Shaun Leonardo, and Sable Elyse Smith, along with others affected by the United States justice system. Their video inserts a speculative narrative into enactments of tableaux of conflict and oppression performed in abandoned prisons and courthouses.
