What Borders are you willing to cross?
An exhibition of works by members of Global Art Project, an international multimedia collaborative collective with over 50 members from 15 different countries.
Exhibition concept: The Borders are wide, various, concrete and philosophical, offering an illusion of safety and definitive organization of reality ignoring the shifts in need and agendas at play at any given time on the international stage and the internal stage.
Borders as a theme not defined, but implied. The obvious way to look at Borders is as it relates to geographic demarcation and socio-political implications, the artists in this exhibition take it one step further; Borders that confound and limit us personally; Borders to be psychologically challenged, broken through and/or accepted.
Risk is the enemy of Fear. Love is the enemy of Hate. Change is the enemy of Complacency. The artists in this exhibition are familiar with Borders and how it manifests in their lives as creative human beings. Emphasis must be given to the importance and timeliness of this exhibition as an outlet for frustration and anxiety as artists attempt to illustrate, enact and represent both change and consciousness raising on a world-wide scale as well as on a personal level in a time when systems are seemingly breaking down in regard to personal expression and freedom.
Your donation, no matter how large or small, will help with the steep costs associated with traveling this exhibition to venues in the United States; packing, shipping, and PR.
Co-Curator, Carl Heyward has already secured a venue in Northern California, Gallerie Renee Marie, Benecia, CA, June 1 to June 30, 2020. Our hope is to keep CrossingBorders traveling to other spaces in order to give as many people as possible the opportunity to see this important show.
Please take a look at the four-minute video to get a sneak preview of some of the works in the exhibition. Thank you for your generosity and support.
