First Generation: A Revolution of Thought is a group
exhibition that explores the idea of cultural origin and what it means to be
the “first” in a family or community to push, question or reinvent familial
culture, structure or traditions. The exhibition showcases student artists from
various fields of study who are not afraid to question the status quo,
challenge antiquated modes of thinking and explore the concept of generational
change between past and present.
At the root of this exhibition lie personal journeys, inner struggles and conflicts, as well as monumental triumphs. The underlying factors that contribute to each transformation as “the first” are what ultimately give this show its life.
Artists include: Sophia Nahli Allison, Laura Anderson Barbata, Alisa Caron, Lilli Carre, Gloria Cristina, Elizabeth Isakson- Dado, Hannah Fehrman, Michelle Graves, Ahmed Hamad, DeAndre Harris, Hannah Evangeline King, Kate Morgan, Caitlin Ryan, Jenna Rodriguez and Jamie Weaver.
