Main Gallery, Visual Arts Facility, UC San Diego

Chanell Stone writes, “Driven by a profound yearning to trace, locate and connect with my ancestral origins and beginnings, I devoted myself to making in the Deep South – in what felt like a familiar first and soon became a multi-year dance between returning while arriving. I share with you all my leavings, encounters and exchanges with this land.”

Exhibition Statement:

“Made across several sojourns to Mississippi and Louisiana, Undulation of a Rupture, emerges out of the enigmatic task of touching the past in the present via the Southern landscape.

"Blackness arises as a complex nexus, intersecting as both a geographical site and tangible material made manifold photographically. Punctuated through form, texture and movement Stone wields her body as a medium acting as a bridge between what is known and what is felt at the edges of visibility.”

Come gather and celebrate, Saturday May 4th 2-6pm.
