"what if" Opening Party
We are thrilled to extend an invitation for our opening of the exhibition, what if, at the Tacoma Art Museum. what if , a multivocal exhibition, is an exploration of the expansiveness of interiority using curiosity as a way finder, illustrating how Black artists remain curious, imaginative, and authentic to self, despite societal perceptions and limitations.
The exhibition will feature works from artists Kristina Batiste,  Le’Ecia Farmer, and Cristina Martinez, including a variety of mediums ranging from ceramics and textiles to paintings and prints. Also included in the exhibition is a sound design inspired by the exhibition’s theme and selected works, produced by Christopher Hill.
