Posing the Question examines the topics of racial equality and a fight for justice through various art forms. It runs January 22nd through March 14.
The topics of racial equality and a fight for justice have been at the forefront of headlines when we look back at 2020. The issues have forced many of us to decide where we stand, and whether we choose to stand in unity, agree to disagree, or just disagree. The latest Heights Arts exhibition Posing the Question showcases these topics and how our nation is responding to them.
Featured artists include Kenneth Bernstein, Matthew Deibel, Mona Gazala, Kenn Hetzel, Scott Kraynak, Liz Maugans, and Omid Tavakoli, with an accompanying spotlight show by Helen Liggett. Their work ranges from photography and paintings reflecting systematic racism from years past, to manipulated photos taken during social justice protests in 2020. Maugans’ paintings recall a time of self-reflection in 2020, when she enrolled in a social justice class and started daily morning runs to meditate on what the classes taught her.
Posing the Question runs January 22nd, with special half-hour viewing sessions on opening night, through March 14.
