Oneness That Is, Too

Noah Reyes & Sergio Suarez in Conversation

Tune in on Saturday, Oct. 22 @ 11AM via Instagram live for a conversation between exhibiting artist Sergio Suarez and Circulation + Editorial Coordinator, Noah Reyes on Sergio’s work and Oneness That Is, Too.

Oneness That Is, Too [September 29–October 22, 2022] explores ideas of the allegorical beyond: nature, wilderness, cosmos as metaphor for an internal or spiritual journey. Featuring artists Michi MekoElizabeth PorcelHasani Sahlehe, and Sergio Suarez, alongside animal participants courtesy of the Fruit Feeder at Canopy Lodge, and microbial participants courtesy of Julia Skinner and Root Kitchens, the exhibition includes works that address and dissolve binary divisions between interior/exterior, human/animal, culture/nature. Together, these works and cross-species collaborations propose the disintegration of such barriers by acknowledging that the mythological other is a potent reflection that mirrors the self—we look outward to the unknowable in order to locate, and perhaps understand, our internal wilds.

Exhibition Hours:

Friday – Sunday, 12-5PM

The exhibition is free and accessible by car, ride-share, or MARTA via the Lakewood Station. Limited parking is available on site. Masks are recommended indoors, but not required. KN95 masks and hand sanitizer will be available.
