We are pleased to announce our participation in Invincible Summer, a group show presented in collaboration with the gallery and studio tenants of Minnesota Street Project. The title, Invincible Summer, is inspired by a quote from Albert Camus’s, Return to Tipasa: “In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”

The theme of this exhibition was conceived prior to the powerful uprising against police brutality against black bodies and communities that has swept through this nation and the world. Today we find ourselves looking at the works we selected, and the notion of ‘Invincible Summer,’ in a new light. One ideal permeates these thoughts: our desire to truly and unequivocally LISTEN, acknowledging that none of us can be the authority on someone else’s experience. These works all represent a desire to reach back through time to connect to another human, and however large or small that gesture, the impulse to connect will help us to forge a path forward, together.

The show will be available to view online beginning Monday, June 29th through the Minnesota Street Project Adjacent website. To see the show in person starting tomorrow June 30th, please make an appointment beforehand. Additionally, navigate MSP’s website here to find instructions on safety protocols and how to prepare for a visit to the building.
