Reflections exhibited work by Anh Bui, Anna Rotty, Azucena Hernandez, Leigh Ann Coleman, Wesaam Al-Badry, and Zach Clark. It took place in the fall of 2017, one year after the 2016 presidential election, at Incline Gallery in San Francisco, CA. The exhibition was a response to a number of political and social events that had occurred in the prior year, such as police brutality, Standing Rock and the election of Donald Trump. The artists, influenced by these events, took a personal approach in their work to comprehend what had happened. The work varied from projections, sculptures, pyrography, installation, photography, textiles, and printmaking. As visitors walked up the ramps of Incline Gallery they were encouraged to spend time with each body of work, in acknowledging all the political and social events that have surfaced and to take a moment to personally reflect.
Throughout the exhibition, there were two coinciding public programing events. One being a printmaking workshop, in collaboration with Mission Grafica at the Mission Cultural Center, where folks were invited to learn to make resistance posters. Another was an artist talk and closing reception, where the exhibiting artists shared with the public their work, practice and stories, sparking conversation between the public and the artists.
