I'm delighted to be part of this upcoming show, which is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department
of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

In different ways, each artist explores the
disruptions and continuities in their cultural backgrounds, whether
through pictorial abstraction,
participatory projects, auditory or written language, or conceptual
reinterpretation of cultural symbols. Their mediums also range widely
and include hand-drawn animation and audio, chemigrams, painting, mixed
media, photography, sculpture, and installation.
