In the Sun
In the Sun is a symposium and group exhibition formed by Houston artist and activist coalition, CASP (Collective Artists in Solidarity with Palestine) and PYM (Palestinian Youth Movement); exploring themes of interconnected struggle, familial & ancestral lineages, reimagining other ways of living outside of oppression, light and darkness, space and resistance.
We explore the mythology of the sun as a gravitational consciousness that connects the movements of our ancestors. The sun mythology – speaks to the visceral struggles shaped by the legacies of colonialism and imperialism. The sun has also been a witness to the experiences of exile, alienation and suffering. Despite it representing these dire conditions of our experiences as displaced peoples, it also represents a force for renewal and for life. Luz en lo oscuro, light in the dark, finds its ways underneath the ground, it tunnels to be liberated, to the far reaches of the sky. The artworks in this exhibition serve as keys and legends in a celestial map, deciphering our collective stories, bridging the dynamics of the places we migrate from, through our resilience and labor we guide ourselves.
