Strength In Practice

 

    Strength in theory is based on physicality or mental fortitude. Strength in practice is not so easily evaluated. Because of the vague nature of the word the artist is empowered to speak to the meaning in their own work. The exhibition “Strength In Practice”, June 1, 2018 –July 21, 2018, is a group art exhibition that will contribute to conversations about mental health, body image, immigration, performative gender, colonialism, and perception. The exhibition is not attempting to define a word, but unpack the world’s anxieties about a concept that could be equated with words like love and justice.

Press Release

“Strength in theory is based on physicality or mental fortitude. Strength in practice is not so easily evaluated.” - Curator Joy Davis

The exhibition “Strength In Practice” (June 1, 2018 – July 21, 2018) will contribute to conversations about mental health, body image, gender, violence, peace, and perception. The exhibition is not attempting to define a word, but unpack the world’s anxieties about a concept that could be equated with words like love and justice.

Strength In Practic is a collaboration between Baltimore’s Gallery CA and Waller Gallery. The opening reception is June 1st from –pm. Both galleries have focused on uplifting artists in the city, and this group show will highlight talent from different age groups and stages in their art practices. Our goal is to be a part of informing and forming communities around access to contemporary art, and to do so, CA and Waller will offer free and sliding scale programming throughout the length of the show.
