Register here to RSVP. Spaces are limited and proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required for entry.
Ferguson Amo works across various mediums, including hyper realistic drawings, installations, and mixed media. Originally from Koforidua, Ghana, the artist explores contemporary African identity in the diaspora and examines the intricate details of history and experiences of cultural diffusion, and its assimilation, through representation. Through each work, Amo asks “how as an audience, can we move the image of black bodies and ‘blackness’ toward emancipation?” Amo has exhibited work at VisArts, Rockville; Kente Royal Gallery and The Immigrant Artist Biennial, both New York City, among others.
Tere Garcia is a multidisciplinary artist working across photography, performance, video, and installation. Her art practice has been an important tool to express, heal, and form narratives about her identity and the places where she exists. Garcia has been traveling and working along the United States and Mexico Border, confronting these boundaries that demolish and hinder unity. Garcia has exhibited work at Northern Illinois University Art Museum, DeKalb; Lawndale Art Center and Station Museum of Contemporary Art, both Houston, among others.
