When the Firebird flies
curated by Nicola E. Petek
The group show raises the question of how artists of different cultural, social and sexual identities meet the challenge of finding new courage after a personal or collective experience of disappointment and great suffering. The show offers a physical experiential space in which to discover the interdisciplinary explorations of the artists.
