“In 2020, we experienced a collective transition. Time and space fixated themselves at the forefront of us. We move alongside temporal and spatial planes in spite of the challenges or triumphs they bring. Now, in 2021, we navigate a new transition, but can we sense ourselves in transit?”
IN TRANSIT is a multimedia, collaborative exhibition that highlights young people and how they use art to pass through and across space and time. This experiment tugs on the nostalgia of the pre-Covid world while simultaneously encouraging artists to transmit their transforming lived experiences through the media of art. Abrams and Parker curated a cohort of artists to explore these thematic questions through a self-portrait — thereby, presenting a collection of intersectional stories of the delicate transition of time through art that encounters class, race, sexuality, and gender.
Enjoy the exhibition of “IN TRANSIT”, curated by Sophia Abrams and Elizabeth Parker, in Gallery 1308 at Union South. “IN TRANSIT” will be open to the public from August 10th - September 10th 2021.
