SISTER – Radical Joy
SISTER is curating Radical Joy at Finch Lane Gallery as an invitation to 29 artists and the viewers to investigate their relationship and process with joy. As a collective, SISTER stands with every artist and respects the vulnerability that each creative brings to gallery spaces, where they can share their work and present their most authentic selves. SISTER focuses on creating brave intersectional spaces with the understanding that art access is limited to certain communities. In highlighting and caring for local women, femmes, queer, nonbinary, and GNC artists, SISTER is continuously learning and developing new strategies to provide a more equitable and inclusive experience.
Malachi Wilson – VACANCIES
Malachi Wilson’s current series, VACANCIES, grapples with themes of legacy, physicality, and self-observation. Using distinct mediums to approach the footprints and forms of different natural objects, these works range from scanner-manipulated archival images to forged steel and delicately contained found materials. Malachi Wilson is an artist based in Provo, UT. His interdisciplinary approach to conceptual art experiments with different interpretations of the human form, structural and linguistic frameworks, and the nature of interpretation in art.
