"Shadow Stories and Matters of Time" brings together three contemporary artists, Sita Kuratomi Bhaumik, Christopher Myers and Kambui Olujimi, who focus on the transformative aspects of storytelling, time, migration and light, as metaphors for contemporary realities. Through found materials and crafted objects, each creates narratives that reflect lived experiences and make social commentary that references recent and historic events related to issues of race, migration and social justice.
Bay Area Now 8 (BAN8) is a triennial exhibition of Bay Area artists. On view is The Archive of Dreams, a new installation created with a my mother, Alicia Kuratomi Bhaumik, who immigrated to the US from Colombia fifty years ago to become an artist.
