Re:definition was launched in 2016 with the goal of redefining historic cultural space. Rotating exhibits throughout the year showcase works from visual artists whose pieces highlight issues of race and social justice, both locally and globally. This year’s theme focuses on work created by artists from the Latinx Diaspora.
The upcoming exhibit will be on display from January 20th through July 2019.

I look forward to seeing you there!
CURATORS’ STATEMENT: I dream of a borderless world where culture is shared rather than appropriated or labeled by a powerful few; where the concept of home can mean every corner of the world or one that resets nightly, depending on where the traveler comes to rest.
Home can mean a physical building, a birthplace, or something in between. For those of us who migrate, this definition is often blurred. While we cling to our identity, we also embrace and adapt to the challenges and opportunities we encounter. The artworks I have selected lean towards the abstract, hoping each viewer comes away with a higher appreciation for the artist’s passion and fewer preconceptions about their ethnicity.
