Common Bonds: Artists and Architects on Community

Event Date: 

Saturday, January 12, 2019 to Sunday, December 6, 2020

Common Bonds is a group exhibition that looks at how artists and architects approach the concept of community. Featuring book arts, drawings, photographs, prints, sculpture, and video, this exhibition examines modern and contemporary works that explore how fellowship and communion are engendered and portrayed. For many practitioners, this exploration consists of observations of specific social circles, ethnic groups, cultural traditions, neighborhoods, or protest movements. For others, especially architects, community is created through planned developments or proposals for public spaces. Common Bonds includes work by Gregory Ain, Roberto Benavidez, Guillermo Bert, Karon Davis, Fritz Eichenberg, Asad Faulwell, Ja'Tovia Gary, Pablo Helguera, James Hill, Peter Hujar, Joseph S. Melchione, Ruben Ochoa, Julius Shulman, Jean Swiggett, Pipo Ngyugen-Duy, Richard B. Taylor, and Kara Walker.
