Diapause: Curated Group Show

Hosted by Workman Arts

The curated portion of Being Scene encapsulates the artist’s process of development, reflecting movement and stillness simultaneously in response to the adaptation of our ever-changing environment. Diapause, meaning dia- ‘through’ + pause (noun), describes a period of suspended development exhibited as a result of unfavorable environmental conditions. The curated exhibition features artwork by Workman artists Coley, Tina Guo, Paula John, Mustafa Khan, Brittany Newlove, Kat Singer, Asma Sultana and Jan Swinburne. Guest Curator Oliviana Cinco invites us to think of this year’s curated exhibit for Being Scene as an offering for self-reflection, as we continue to re-engage with the world and find new ways of connecting with ourselves and our communities.
