“Intersection” brings together artists from across Southern California whose practices engage with/ identity through components of intersectionality, privilege, choices, culture, chance, or events. This exhibition provides the framework for a diverse range of Southern California artists to address, confront and/or interpret ideas of personal and collective identity, sexuality, cultural equity, and other life defining moments, conditions or perceptions.
Juror Emily Gonzalez-Jarrett, artist and museum liaison at Honor Fraser, Los Angeles accomplished the challenging task of reviewing 531 works from over 200 artists. After thoughtful consideration of the entries and exhibition concept, Gonzalez-Jarrett narrowed the field to 44 works by 23 artists, stating ” I am grateful for the introduction to the practices of everyone who made a submission. I was thrilled to see that many artists are representing and working through this tumultuous world.”
