In A Dream You Saw a Way to Survive and You Were Full of Joy

September 17, 2022

The Contemporary Austin presents a group exhibition featuring eight artists whose work explores how narrative and storytelling shape our senses of self, community, history, and identity. The artists on view in the exhibition In A Dream You Saw a Way to Survive and You Were Full of Joy create space for underrepresented subjects by challenging the forms of representation and exclusion generated within the dominant, patriarchal culture. With a title referencing a text by the prominent feminist artist Jenny Holzer, the exhibition includes works by Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley, Adriana Corral, Ellie Ga, Juliana Huxtable, Tala Madani, Danielle Mckinney, Wendy Red Star, and Clare Rojas. Together, these artists invite us to reflect on the social and historical conditions underpinning our ways of being in the world, and they may inspire us to imagine and create more equitable, joyful futures.
