Choosing to Portage
On view through November 18, 2023
Tephra Institute of Contemporary Art
Reston, Virginia

“Choosing to Portage” brings together five artists who operate with deep reverence for the embodied knowledge that is passed down through skilled-making processes and culturally specific objects and materials. From distinctly different cultural backgrounds, these artists leverage making processes and materials specific to their own lives and cultural heritage to create complex and vital inquiries into the urgent topics of our time. The resulting artworks do not look inward at the identity of the artist but rather demonstrate the relevance and impact of operating from a position of cultural specificity.
