(in)Visible

“As the 2016 election year has highlighted, deep currents of belief, experience, and culture divide our world. This exhibition seeks to highlight female and gender non-binary artists working in ceramics, who in some way feel invisible to the dominant culture. These artists represent struggles with physical and mental illnesses (commonly termed “invisible illnesses”), gender, sexuality, culture, religion, and race. For each of us, art is our voice and our way to make seen and heard what we are all too often told to keep quiet about.”

(in)Visible began as a group show I curated for NCECA 2018 in Pittsburgh, accepted as a Concurrent Exhibition. It has since become something larger. We now have an Instagram account @wearentinvisible showcasing artists of all genders and disciplines whose work speaks out against invisibility. I am so proud and full of love thanks to all of these wonderful people.
