Traveling Exhibitions Bring More Art to More People

ExhibitsUSA has been busy making sure that venues around the country have a broad and quality choice when booking exhibitions in their spaces. Recently, we introduced three new shows. EUSA exhibitions travel the country for approximately five years and are curated, prepared, even crated with the greatest attention to detail. All shows include press materials, registrar packets, detailed hanging instructions, and extensive educational materials. Learn more about hosting an exhibition.

Resilience—A Sansei Sense of Legacy is an exhibition of eight artists whose work reflects on the effect of the forced imprisonment of Japanese Americans during WWII, as it resonated from generation to generation. Told from the point of view of Sansei (third generation) Japanese Americans, Resilience includes works constructed using traditional Japanese methods—boro stitching on works on paper; kintsugi on ceramic vessels that accompany deconstructed kimonos—as well as those using iconography relating to Japanese culture as a jumping-off point for personal explorations. Featured artists are: Kristine Aono, Reiki Fuji, Wendy Maruyama, Lydia Nakashima Degarrod, Tom Nakashima, Roger Shimomura, Judy Shintani, and Jerry Takigawa. Launching December 2021.

Walking in Antarctica is the result of artist Helen Glazer’s time as a grantee of the National Science Foundation’s Antarctic Artists and Writers Program, in order to photograph ice and geological formations for eventual production as photographic prints and sculpture. She worked out of remote Antarctic scientific field camps and had access to protected areas that can only be entered with government permits or in the company of a skilled mountaineer. This immersive, interdisciplinary exhibition bringing together photography, sculpture, and audio narrative to take the viewer on a journey through an extraordinary environment of remote places that the tourist ships do not reach and few people get to witness in person. Launching April 2022.

Two Minutes to Midnight and the Architecture of Armageddon is an exhibition of two photographic essays by artists Jeanine Michna-Bales and Adam Reynolds offering a calculated look at the “Architecture of Armageddon,” with both the offensive and defensive implications of nuclear war. These quiet architectural spaces, devoid of people, allow viewers to come face to face with present nuclear realities while also offering a look into the collective psyche of the American people during the Cold War. The works seek out places that are often hidden in plain sight. Launching April 2021.
