The Center for Contemporary Art and Gallery Aferro are excited to present Through You Into Action, a major multi-site exhibition and accompanying publication of the same name, commemorating the first 5 years of Gallery Aferro’s award-winning studio residency program. The publication will be available for sale on site at each venue starting April 16. The exhibitions, curated by gallery co-founders Evonne M. Davis and Emma Wilcox, present an expansive and highly diverse cross-section of contemporary art practice, encompassing sculpture, printmaking, painting, installation, video and performance by 30 alumni of the program, which takes place in Gallery Aferro’s 20,000 sq ft building.
Connecting Bedminster (Somerset County) and Newark (Essex County) and featuring site-specific installations, Through You Into Action presents the artistic vibrancy of the region, and the important role that workspace programs and art centers play in placemaking and the free exchange of ideas.
