OOLITE ARTS: “ON THE ROAD II”
Inspired by Jack Kerouac’s iconic Beat novel, curator Larry Ossei-Mensah has circled the globe seeking out artists who, like the author, explore issues of mobility, freedom and identity during times of political and social change. In this second iteration (the first exhibit was held in Brooklyn), Ossei-Mensah focused on artists from Detroit and Miami, two cities whose music, languages, demographics and art reflect the transformative moments in which they find themselves. To better understand both present and future, the curator asks: “How [are] artists participating in, responding to, or questioning their immediate environment?” The answers appear before your eyes. Through Dec. 15.
