More Than That Opening Reception
February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Flaten Art Museum’s exhibition More Than That: Diversity within Diversity brings together artists of color working in a multiplicity of genres and forms that defy cultural expectations frequently imposed upon artists of color. Guest curator Roberto Lugo explains, “the artists invited not only represent artists of color currently working in ceramics, but the diversity of discourse taking place within our communities.” Presented concurrently with the 53rd annual NCECA conference in Minneapolis, Minn., this exhibition embodies Claytopia’s conception of a “restless yearning for a more livable, just and meaningful world.” Exhibiting artists include Paul Briggs, Syd Carpenter, Morel Doucet, Ezenwa, Courtney Leonard, Roberto Lugo, Malcolm Mobutu Smith, Sana Musasama, Autumn Wallace, and Diego Valles.
This exhibition is generously supported by the Glen H. and Shirley Beito Gronlund Annual Exhibition Series Fund, St. Olaf College.
