Realms of Refuge: Kavi Gupta | 219 N. Elizabeth St. Chicago, IL 60607

10 July - 30 October 2021
Kavi Gupta presents Realms of Refuge, a group show of new works by Dominic Chambers, Allana Clarke, Basil Kincaid, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Michi Meko, Devan Shimoyama, and Alisa Sikelianos-Carter.
Culture begins within the inner wilderness of the artist’s thoughts and feelings. Rest and stillness are essential to the creative act. Realms of Refuge can be literal or symbolic zones—anywhere the intellect is nurtured, instinct is unhindered, and the soul is free to wander.
Focusing inward in both a physical and symbolic sense, the artists in this exhibition create works that are rooted in introspection and metamorphosis. They speak of the desire to retreat from the oppressive gaze, towards a safe space for creativity and renewal.
