intransit brings together 30 artists working in different media such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, film and video. To deal with the cracks in the urban landscape and its decay, the artists have built cross-sections of ecological, racial, and identity issues as metaphors. These meditations, rife with ethnographic, historical and natural symbolism, help to reinforce a position amidst surmounting struggles — for instance, the fight against global warming and the disappearing ideal of the globalized world — to assert their multi-faceted voices and identities. This show presents a dynamic look at today’s society, a complex and poetic visual journey.
