The Sole Exchange Exhibit
Wednesday, May 18, 11am to 5pm, through May 22nd
Curator Francis Palazzolo and 25 five artists from the Healing Arts Initiative (HAI) invite you to take action by putting yourself in someone else's shoes at the Sole Exchange Exhibit. The show includes over one hundred paintings, drawings and photographs spanning two decades. Surrounded by artworks where artists’ pictured themselves as some else, gallery-goers may participate in the process through the literal exchange footwear. With pedestals overturned to support participants, swapping heightens the opportunity to experience another’s situation and to share in the discourse. Disposable socks are on hand to place over un-shoed feet to ease switching back & forth. Artists include Derrick Coard, Ray Lopez, Laura Anne Walker, Roger Jones, Aracelis Rivera, Lukau Lukelo, Joy Smith, Linda Moses, Larry Ferguson, Georgia Redd, Anthony Perez, Phillip Clark, Rosemary Yoboby, Stepanie Freader, Angela Rogers, Alyson Vega, Vincent Salas, Jeshurun Breach, Alyssa Morerro, Ioan Taralesca, Cynthia Timms, Lawrence Willoughby, Jorge Hernandez, Christopher Jean Baptiste & Jenny Chan.
