curated by William Cordova

Indivisible: spirits in the material world brings together a group of Cultural practitioners whose work evolved and is in concert with non-for profit art institutions that include; Joan Mitchell Center, Headlands Art Center, Studio Museum in Harlem and The Franklin Space. 

These practitioners all focus on utilizing visual art as a tool to critically address the tenor of Cultural wealth in forms that challenge standard Popular Culture imagery… in the process, transcend beyond mainstream expectations.  “There is no political solution to our troubled evolution. Have no faith in constitution, there is no bloody revolution. We are spirits in the material world.” -Gordon Sumner
