ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
FLOURISHING: SOMEWHERE WE STAY AUTHENTIC is the second exhibition in the FLOURISHING series, featuring Maanii Oakes and Richard Harlow. Hailing from opposite sides of the country, these two artists converge to present work illustrating the inescapable impact of one’s environments, natural and human. SOMEWHERE WE STAY AUTHENTIC offers the audience glimpses into the artists’ efforts to navigate potentially overwhelming terrain, negotiating their own versions of landscapes in which they are able to thrive. We can never truly escape our past or the forces that have brought us to the here and now, but perhaps in looking honestly and unflinchingly at who and where we are, we open ourselves up to the potential of co-creating of what will be.
