Ju-Pong Lin, 1000 Gifts of Decolonial Love
& Roberta May Wong, I-Ching Revolution: 101
New England-based artist Ju-Pong Lin, known for her community performances, videos and art installations, hosted story circles that enfolded us in love as an antidote to the hatred fed by colonial amnesia.
A conceptual/installation artist from Portland, OR, Wong asked participants to "show face" in support of Black Lives Matters by bringing a 2"x2", black & white photograph (self-portraits) to the exhibit where they were assembled into the lines of the I-Ching hexagram, #49, the symbol for Revolution.
Portland-based artists Melanie Stevens and maximiliano brought visual art, performance, installation, and poetry for the month of November:
1)history in the taking
