Celebrate NLE Lab Opening: The Way Out Is Through

Saturday, January 10 2015 - Saturday, January 31 2015

The Way Out Is Through is a multidisciplinary exhibition that addresses the shifting landscape of urban environments. Through video, interactive media, installation, performance, and sculpture by participating artists—Peggy Buth, Raquel Cepeda, Free Breakfast Program, Paloma McGregor, Akeema-Zane, Nicko Nogués, Kyla Marshell, Mark Salvatus, and Phan V.,—the exhibition asks what is the relationship between home and communities in flux. The works explore narratives of belonging, public space, and nostalgia—challenging what it means to belong to a community and our connectedness to shared memories of a neighborhood. In the exhibition title, “the way out is through” is a reflection of our relationship between the transient nature of the urban city and how we respond to tensions between our home interiors, exteriors of public space, and the act of letting go.

Curated by Leticia Gutierrez, Ladi’Sasha Jones, Kirstin Kapustik, Zena Koo, Kenneth Paranada, and Maurizzio Hector Pineda.
