Exploring Deaf Geographies Opening Weekend
January 22, 2022 @ 12:00PM — January 23, 2022 @ 4:00PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
To ensure social distancing and keep everyone healthy, Pyramid is asking people to RSVP for an exhibition viewing time of up to one hour. These RSVPs are FREE and allow us to keep the galley attendance at a safe level during opening weekend. Please note, we are also planning an Artist Reception in late February in hopes that the current Covid-19 surge will have ebbed.
Exploring Deaf Geographies
Curated by Tabitha Jacques in collaboration with the Dyer Arts Center at Rochester Institute of Technology
Works by Deaf artists are featured in this exhibition exploring Deaf geographies. Deaf geographies are at once both physical and abstract spaces, ranging from Deaf community hubs such as Washington, DC, and Rochester, NY, to conversations, impressions, and memories shared by Deaf people expressing their identities. Works will feature prints, papercutting, collage, paintings, and papermaking. Artists represented are current residents of either the Rochester or Greater Washington areas. This one-of-a-kind exhibition will provide visitors a glimpse of what it means to create a Deaf geography and how the artists’ multiple identities form that space.
Artists: Laural Hartman, Youmee Lee, Melissa Malzkuhn, Aaron Swindle, and Yiqiao Wang
