This exhibition, guest curated by Tya Alisa Anthony, is an invitation for us to consider the Exhibiting Artists’ responses to our current reality. BMoCA is excited to hold space for this contemplation, and encourages visitors to move through the galleries while thinking critically about where we see ourselves going, FROM THIS DAY FORWARD.
COVID-19 Global Pandemic and Race, Gender + Civil Equity bring to light the urgent need for change in how we create, how we work, how we learn and grow with and from one another, how we converse with others, how we design and operate within systems, and most urgent of them all… how we respect humanity.
How do we explore how we create a future society evolved for the betterment of humanity? FROM THIS DAY FORWARD questions systemic injustice and suggests avenues of thought toward potential solutions in creating an inclusive, thoughtful society. How do we come together as a community to find these answers?
