Our idea of the communal has changed drastically and may remain forever changed.

As we sheltered with our closest community: our family, ourselves, we discovered what it means to be removed from the outside world. We depended on technology to connect us. We found comfort and sometimes discomfort in our limited surroundings. We found the same through the frame of a video screen. We reflected on what we missed and we reached out to the world as it quieted then erupted; and after we looked for connection, justice, and meaning. 

This exhibition represents connection. Different artists in our community reflect on, dissect and illuminate the established and new communal experiences and the isolated ones. Whether it’s Watie White’s capture of a crushed crowd last year at MAHA, Therman Statom’s thoughtful piecing together of story and society, the intimacy of Pamela Conyers-Hinson’s tactile and emotional pieces, Juan Sanchez’s connection from afar to the inspiration and evolution of Jun Kaneko’s work or the communal art project Tessellation which connected our world in small, digital works of individual art. This exhibition speaks to some facet of what we lost in the communal experience and how we are reinventing it.

KANEKO’s mission is to look at things differently. We strive to achieve this by making a place open and available to all, where ideas, art, anything can happen. Our exhibitions will no longer follow a predetermined schedule, but instead are open to mutation and evolution as people react and respond. We expect this exhibition to develop and grow in our space and hope you do too.

KANEKO is excited to welcome you back into our gallery spaces! We are uniquely equipped to manage a restricted number of visitors due to our large gallery space and have carefully adhered to city, state, and federal COVID-19 guidelines when planning for our doors opening.
