Reception, “Intersection”, Juror Emily Jarrett, Curator Honor Fraser Gallery, August 17, 6 – 9pm

“The Stars Come out at Night”, Oil on Canvas, 14×18, 2018

An Intersection occurs when two or more paths cross- where cultures, histories, ambitions or chance converge, creating defining moments of decision, denial or opportunity. For some, the paths are riddled with obstacles or even blocked while for others the way is smoothed. For some the moment is fleeting, for others it lasts a lifetime. The artists of “Intersection” respond to these diverging and converging moments that shape their identities, imbue their work and impact their daily lives. This exhibition brings together artists from across Southern California whose practices engage with identity through components of intersectionality, privilege, choices, culture, chance, or events.
“Intersection” Juried by Emily Gonzalez Jarrett, Curator Honor Fraser Gallery, at LAUNCH LA, in partnership with The Korean Cultural Center5505 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, August 17 to August 30, 2018.
