In Memory


CYDONIA

CYDONIA is pleased to announce In Memory, a collaborative exhibition with Mercado369. This exhibition closes the gallery’s activist-themed programming for the 2018-2019 exhibition year. The reception will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 25. The exhibition runs from July 25 to August 25, 2019.

The exhibition functions as a response to some of the questions that previous exhibition ‘Survival Politics’ poses about cultural significance and gentrification. Framing gentrification as a current day colonization of communities of color, the gallery can be seen as a complicit force with the cultural restructuring that takes place. Acting as a cultural center of sorts, what responsibility does the gallery have towards reaching out or reflecting the surrounding community? Does a gallery import culture to the community or export culture from the community? In an effort to find an answer to these questions Cydonia and Mercado369 have co-organized Warsaw-based artist, Alicja Bielawska, and Mata Ortiz pottery artists to create a dialogue of craft and memory. The exhibition will span both locations inclusive of the Safe Room and Mercado369.
