GAP CrossingBorders - INTO THE LIGHT -02


CrossingBorders : INTO THE LIGHT 

Pacific Grove Art Center 

July 1 - August 25, 2022
What Borders are you willing to cross?

An exhibition of works by members of Global Art Project, an international multimedia collaborative collective with over 60 members from 17 different countries.


CrossingBorders : INTO THE LIGHT marks the third incarnation of this evolving traveling exhibition after successful showings in Belgium at Campo- Santo in 2019 and 2020's CrossingBorders USA at Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery in Lafayette, Ca in the SF Bay Area.

Exhibition concept: 


The Borders are wide, various, concrete and philosophical, offering an illusion of safety and definitive organization of reality ignoring the shifts in need and agendas at play at any given time on the international stage and the internal stage.

Borders is a theme not defined, but implied. The obvious way to look at Borders is as it relates to geographic demarcation and socio-political implications, the artists in this exhibition take it one step further; Borders that confound and limit us personally; Borders to be psychologically challenged, broken through and/or accepted.

Risk is the enemy of Fear. Love is the enemy of Hate. Change is the enemy of Complacency. The artists in this exhibition are familiar with Borders and how it manifests in their lives as creative human beings. Emphasis must be given to the importance and timeliness of this exhibition as an outlet for frustration and anxiety as artists attempt to illustrate, enact and represent both change and consciousness raising on a world-wide scale as well as on a personal level in a time when systems are seemingly breaking down in regard to personal expression and freedom.
