“Represent” Curated by Ginger Rudolph
Paradigm Gallery is pleased to announce REPRESENT curated by Ginger Rudolph. The exhibition will be open to the public from March 25th through May 8th, 2022, with an opening reception on Friday, March 25th from 5:30pm – 8:00pm.
Ginger Rudolph is a curator, artist, and writer. She is originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is the Founder & Editor of HAHA Magazine (High on Art, Heavy on Antics), an arts journal with a focus on contemporary art and street art.
As a curator of color in an art world that seems overwhelmingly white, I often overthink how cultural practices, seen through the lens of contemporary art, fall on the eyes of others. Culture is a symbolic communication of our attitudes, values, and learned knowledge. Art as a representation of culture is meant to communicate broadly. Yet, it can be scary to seek acceptance of your culture in its intricacies – especially when their symbols or behaviors are often misread, deemed too loud, too much, too confrontational.
Mz. Icar’s “In Us We Trust” collection and Nazeer Sabree’s “False Face” series feature familiar symbols and rituals put before you as tangible visual aspects of ‘US’. With ‘Represent,’ these artists and I take agency over our narratives, contextualizing with an aesthetic determination of cultural freedom to arrive at a new architecture of cultural awareness.
