Gallery Reception: Reimagining Peace to Come
Han-Mee Artists Association of Greater Washington (HMAA) Group Exhibition.
Join us in the Chaney and Martino Galleries from 6-8 pm to celebrate the opening of "Reimagining Peace to Come" featuring works by Han-Mee Artists Association of Greater Washington (HMAA). This group exhibition explores the concept of peace through art.. The reception is free and open to the public and includes wine, cheese and community. No registration required.
This exhibition explores the concept of peace through art. Art is a powerful tool in which we engage and mediate conflict and trauma. Contemporary peacebuilding practices use art as a tool to build a common ground in conflicting parties. Art has been a source of healing to many all over the world. Our hopes for peace are unique to each individual. It is this hope that continuously challenges the status quo and pushes our generation to build a peace that is inclusive and diverse. The peace to come refers to Jaques Derrida’s concept of “l’avenir.” which refers to the future whose arrival is unexpected. We can’t predict what the future holds and how this peace will arrive but give us hope for a better future. The exhibition reimagines what the future holds for peace to come.
