Our life is influenced by illusion and delusion. We experience many things in everyday life and create our own interpretations to form both personal and community identities. This process goes in both directions: on one level each person creates their own personality, yet, once the communal standard is established, that creates labels for a person to embrace, defy, or something in between.
Artists in Both Directions at Once examine cultural and personal identities, immigration and racial struggles, preservation of nature and the environment, and the human desire to attain utopian states, in their unique spatial and visual perspectives.
The title of the exhibition is inspired by the John Coltrane album recently found and released this year, Both Directions at Once.
