Futures: Made Here Storefront Art Exhibit
Contemporary Art Lab Leads Adrienne Doyle, Tia-Simone Gardner and Jordan Hamilton; Contemporary Art Lab Apprentices Kayla Baribeau, Samie Johnson, Ysa Johnson and Skyler McBurnie
This piece functions as a narrative, centering how we envision and cultivate the futures we want and honoring the Earth. Reflecting on the state of the world we live in, what futures we want to create within it and what we want to leave behind, we explore what it looks like to resist and persist through the toxicity of our current social and political climates and move forward. The mixed media installation was created assemblage style using recycled, second-hand, and found objects. This piece was created through JXTA’s Contemporary Arts Lab by instructors Adrienne Doyle, Tia-Simone Gardner and Jordan Hamilton and apprentices Kayla Baribeau, Samie Johnson, Ysa Johnson and Skyler McBurnie.
