Invisible Sun | on view May 26–Oct 3, 2021

Developed amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the groundswell of demands for social justice and racial equity, Invisible Sun features works that resonate with this unprecedented period of rupture and unrest. The exhibition’s title is taken from Julie Mehretu’s painting Invisible Sun (algorithm 8, fable form) (2015). While not created in response to these specific events, works on view speak to profound transitions both personal and global and form an appeal for healing. ​

Artists included respond to issues such as the AIDS crisis, gender- and race-based violence, unchecked capitalism, and colonialism’s aftermath. They collectively grapple with revolution and change, loss, and recovery, and how the freedoms and prosperity of powerful countries come at the expense of others. The exhibition intends to be a site for reflection, education, and dialogue towards confronting current issues and offering space for contemplating a more just world. ​
