In Transit

 

Life is constantly moving in various directions and on many levels. In Transit features ten artists who examine different transitional junctures.

 

Mel Vera Cruz’s piece Lucky incorporates Balikbayan boxes that are used for shipping items to family in the Philippines. Other times the change is emotional and psychological, such as Charlene Tan’s piece Silent Labor that discusses privilege and inequality. Marcius Noceda’s piece Sway involves the physical and emotional transformation that occurs simultaneously.

 

In Transit investigates these multiple shifts and provides a space for understanding the nuances of these moments, contemporary and historical. These processed emotions and ideas allow us to form an unfamiliar vocabulary for these newly attained vision.
