View Website

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce Roots and Wings, a group exhibition on view March 2 through March 22, 2019. Roots and Wings features twelve artists whose works speak to the tension between political and social aspiration and the obstacles presented by everyday pressures. This exhibition includes James Chisholm, Markeith Woods, Diana Linsse, Poonam Verma, Roberta Caviglia, Teona Titvinidze-Kapon, Jon Kraja, Vasant Dora, Eunhyue Shin, Katha Rossein, Emil Silberman, Raul Mariaca Dalence and Yoram Kafkafi.

Roots and Wings is an exhibition of works that rest somewhere on the continuum between figuration and abstraction. Yet, all of the works share in spatially and visually embodying the drama of historic aspiration. With themes ranging from the depiction of battlefields, to death under moonlight, to the more interior struggles of domestic life and the pressures of femininity, Roots and Wings communicates a melancholic atmosphere which isn’t without a tincture of hope.

Roots and Wings exhibits all the distinguishing characteristics of formalism, while showcasing all-too-familiar scenarios. In this way, the exhibition expresses the conatus of human aspiration as something that continually seeks recognition. The often solitary figures depicted in the works convey a restless energy, an awareness of life’s complexity that refuses to give into resignation.

Roots and Wings opens at March 2, 2019 and will be on display until March 22, 2019, with an opening reception on Thursday, March 7, 6-8 PM. All are welcome to attend. Entrance to the gallery is free.
