Juxtaposition Arts

Title: Contemporary Futures

Location: 730 Hennepin Avenue

On display until: September 8, 2017

This piece functions as a narrative, centering how we envision and cultivate the futures we want and honoring the Earth. Reflecting on the state of the world we live in, what futures we want to create within it and what we want to leave behind, we explore what it looks like to resist and persist through the toxicity of our current social and political climates and move forward. The mixed media installation was created assemblage style using recycled, second hand and found objects.

About our Organization: Juxtaposition Arts develops community by engaging and employing young urban artists in hands-on education initiatives that create pathways to self-sufficiency while actualizing creative power. This piece was created through JXTA’s Contemporary Arts Lab, by instructors Adrienne Doyle, Tia-Simone Gardner and Jordan Hamilton and apprentices Kayla Baribeau, Samie Johnson, Ysa Johnson and Skyler McBurnie.
