Artist Talk: February 17, 6PM - 8PM

Jersey City Theater Center presents DESTINY: LOCAL TO GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES, an exhibition exploring the multiple meanings of destiny in the world today. The show is curated by Atim Annette Oton, Jersey City Theater Center's art curators who posed the questions for artists to respond to:

What is Destiny? Are we bound for destiny or does destiny happen to us? Is it coincidence or synchronicity? Do we determine our fate or are we victims of it? What does our society of diverse & complex human beings believe or avoid believing? What are the cultural norms and do conform to or rebel against those norms? Do artists create, interpret or include destiny?

Destiny features a group of 16 culturally diverse artists:

Geraldine Anderson Gaines, Ian "Billy Bones" Murphy, Nanette Reynolds Beachner, Grigory Gurevich, Catalina Aranguren, Janhavi Firke, Erin Kuhn, Lawrence Ciarallo, Monika Kalra, Tyber Qalipu Mishipeshu Murphy, Donchellee Fulwood, Duda Penteado, Anna Kasperowitz, David James, Cecilia Martinez, and Akil Roper.

Curated by Atim Annette Oton
