About the Exhibit:

Step into this lively and colorful Utopia where class, race, sexuality, age, abilities, belief systems and gender, dance in all their beauty and complexities to a rhythmic beat of respect, tolerance and understanding.

Intermingled, intertwined, interfacing. In an age where we seek ideological purity, You Am I examines how each of these facets of our identity can coexist in analogous ambiguity. How are these multiplicities embraced? Is there a singular thread that weaves across the identity landscape: binding, repairing? Is there a rise of fantastical individualism? Or does identity melt into a pool of punctuated homogeny? As the dance progresses, do we forget to notice? Our diversity becomes our unity as we sway forward to the beat of this neoteric revolution.

You am I, I am you, we are one.

Featured Artists:

Adam Chau, Blanca Guerra-Echeverria, Crystal Morey, John Byrd, Kensuke Yamada, Linda Swanson, Malcom Mobutu Smith, Natalia Albelaez, Raheleh Filsoofi, Steven Young Lee.

MARA DUVRA
TO BE SEEN / TO BE MANIFOLD

On view in the 2007 Emerson Gallery February 11 to April 6, 2019

Juxtaposition Arts (JXTA) proudly presents the work of Minnesota-based visual artist Mara Duvra in the 2007 Emerson Gallery on view from February 11 to April 6, 2019. Her current body of work, Tending: meditations on interiority and blackness, is focused on centering softer visual representations of women of color, using poetic and ephemeral imagery to understand Blackness beyond public identities. This work addresses what it is to be hyper-visible and simultaneously unseen. The opening reception and artist talk will be held on Thursday, February 14: doors open at 6PM, and the artist talk will take place at 7PM. Gallery admission and all events are free and open to the public.

Tending is about the quiet and quotidian, the still and meditative. With photographic images, poetry, found objects, and small sculptural arrangements, Duvra creates an environment that encourages stillness and contemplation of interior landscapes. The installations and corresponding texts introduce wonder and imagination into the handling of black identities. In this project, Duvra uncovers poetic representations of tenderness, calm, and creativity in order to create a rich anthology of representations of blackness.

Opening Reception / Artist Talk:

Thursday, February 14
Doors: 6:00PM | Artist Talk: 7:00PM
Gallery Hours & Location: Monday–Thursday 10:00AM–4:00PM; 2007 Emerson Avenue North, Minneapolis, MN 55411

About the Artist:

Mara Duvra is a visual artist and writer. Her research-based practice combines photography, poetry, and video to create installations that explore stillness and interiority as critical modes of self-study. Duvra’s current body of work, Tending, uses poetic and ephemeral imagery to understand Blackness beyond resistance or public identity. Originally from Maryland, Duvra received a BA in Studio Art and Psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park, and an MFA in Studio Art from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Her work has been featured in local galleries such as Soo Visual Arts Center, Public Functionary, and Yeah Maybe, and she was an Artist-In-Residence at The White Page. Duvra is currently a Jerome Emerging Artist Fellow, a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative recipient, a curator at the Waiting Room at Gallery 71, and an instructor of painting and drawing at Saint Paul Academy and Summit School.
