by means of play
A group exhibition through Associated Artists of Pittsburgh at Gallery One Collective Works (G1|CW) in Pittsburgh, PA | April 18 to May 30 2018
Artists: Andrew Allison, Pati Beachley, Jamie Earnest, Joshua Kosker, Crystal Latimer, Deanna Mance, Paul Peng, and Gray Swartzel.
“By Means of Play explores celebratory artmaking as acts of resistence. The exhibition challenged the notion of marginzalized persons only creating works that highlight their identity. Vescio wanted to reveal works that showcased art as joyful creation while establishing the identity of oneself. Artists throughout the exhibition displayed works on queer relationships, symbolism of womanhood, race and one’s culture, grapplings with religion, and creations with amusing images. While the content of these works had serious undertones, Vescio wanted the pieces to exist without the pressures of society’s expectations.”
