My Place or Yours? Cara Hagan, Guest Curator
June 7, 2019 - July 5, 2019
Guest Curator’s Statement
At its core, Artistic Surrogacy is about access. Who has access to institutional spaces? Who has access to the capital necessary to create work? Who has access to the cultural capital it takes to be recognized in the art world? How can artists subvert the impact of institutional bias, geographical isolation, sexism, racism, ableism, geopolitics, distorted societal beliefs about value, economic imbalance, and a deteriorating environment due to ground and air travel, through their pursuits? Through their collaborations, female-identified, gender non-conforming, and queer brown, black, and white artists from various socio-economic backgrounds, who are inventors, storytellers, scholars, magic-makers, caretakers, chronically ill, disabled, able-bodied, formally and informally educated, institutionally recognized and unrecognized, traveled and untraveled, from our region, from across the United States, and the world, make the experience of the arts more democratic for themselves and their audiences.
