An exploration of cultural heritage, representation, and oppression, showcasing six emerging artists, all from Southern California, who deftly and intriguingly speak to social and cultural issues– sexuality, race, and cultural heritage. Artworks in the form of photography, sound installation, video, and social practice, spotlight the impressive artistry of Alanna Airitam, Morgan DeLuna, Michelada Think Tank, Jimena Sarno, Quyên Nguyen-Le, and dana washington. ABOUT-FACE also features Momentum, a video created by UCSD MFA graduate Lorna Simpson, the prominent Brooklyn-based artist whose work has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Venice Biennale.
