Conflict Point

The telling of history is complicated. The narratives we believe are true are often controlled by a society’s dominant group, leading to social and cultural collisions. There is no greater evidence of this than the prevailing push in contemporary culture to add other voices, recognize missing elements of history, and the movement against single stories because so many experienced the real social and political consequences of being excluded. Artists-in-residence Jackie Milad, Barbara Schreiber, Edison Peñafiel, Janet Loren Hill, and Sichong Xie question this concept of the narrative, using their work to add and ask questions about humanity’s relationship to the past, the present, each other, and the natural world. This exhibition and the artist residencies of Edison Peñafiel and Sichong Xie are presented in partnership with Windgate Foundation.
