Event Description:
In a time of increasing divisiveness, separation, polarization, and fortified walls, artists can serve critical roles in building indirect associations, nurturing connections, and reminding us of the importance of considering a multitude of perspectives. BoundarySpan is a group exhibition at the Natalie and James Thompson Art Gallery displaying works by artists Michael Arcega, Jimin Lee, Paula Levine, Sherwin Rio, and Desiree Rios.

Human fabricated, artificial borders have been formed politically time and again to divide and subjugate populations for the benefit of those in power. By imaginatively eradicating, altering, and inverting these boundaries contemporary artists seek to challenge colonialism, subvert capitalist market segmentation, and combat white supremacy. BoundarySpan seeks to highlight the practices and efforts of artists who are roving ambassadors seeking to increase the degree of connectivity and integration between perceived combatants.
