Tea Taste Democracy and Upside Down Objects, Yoko Inoue (Brooklyn, NY), artist-in-residence at SPACES. For Tea Taste Democracy & Upside Down Objects, Yoko Inoue (Brooklyn, NY) researched the Japanese Art collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art, focusing on how Japanese aesthetics and cultural iconography was integrated into the American economy and how former CMA Director Sherman Emory Lee’s role as a World War II “Monuments Man” impacted post-war US occupation and “democratization”. http://www.spacesgallery.org/project/yoko-inoue
Home Again, selection of video works curated by Cigdem Slankard (Rocky River, OH) with artists Bisaane Al-Charif (apris, France), Halil Altindere (Istanbul, Turkey), Sabina Haque (Portland, OR), Charlotte Windle Mikkelborg (London, UK), and Mohamad Omran (Paris, France). The videos explore the questions: What does “home” mean in the 21st century? Is it where you come from, where you belong, where you feel safe? Is it a physical manifestation that contains us and our belongings? Or is it a quest for a better life and a sense of belonging? http://www.spacesgallery.org/project/vault-may–june-2017
