Intersectionality is the contemporary framework we selected to explore our identity construction in todays reality. We go beyond the concept of cosmopolitanism that brings together like-minded people in their different voices and nationalities. The Intersectionality approach of Reads Art Space addresses the complex and subtle interplay of our ethnicity, gender differences, forced migration and transnational population movements that shape various levels of invisible oppression and how they impact our identity construction and expression.

Intersectionality: a new way of framing our sense of belonging

In Intersectionality, the Artists are giving us the tools to see, express and together create social change through a new framework that enables us to understand and shape our ever-evolving selves. The exhibit invites the viewer to weave their inner threads as they shift from the expression of one artist to the next and meet them individually and collectively.

Opening Reception: Thursday, January 24, 2019, @ 610 pm.
Join us for wine and hors doeuvres and meet the artists. The show will be open through February 28, 2019.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday 12 PM 5 PM Wednesday 12 PM 5PM Thursday 12 PM 5 PM Friday 12 PM 5 PM Saturday 12 PM 5 PM
