27-Oct. 2, Loft Gallery
In this exhibition, CAC
spring/summer artist in residence Tiffany Lawson aims to explore community,
with a spotlight on how neighborhoods change and the impact on those who live
in them. This exhibition also embodies the spirit of Sanfoka, a metaphorical
term used by the Akan people of Ghana which means “You must go back to reclaim
that which was lost in order to move forward,” to explore how individuals
respond to those relational changes in society. Utilizing mixed media, found
objects, assemblage, collage and drawing, this work aims to embody the essence
of both adaptability and resiliency.
