A show about marginalization
curated by OFF Space
held at Aggregate Space and Red Poppy Art House
With Shifting Margins, OFF Space will bring together works that inspire deliberation, consideration and argument as we grapple with the location, meaning and use of the edge, outsider-ness, privilege and what it means to be “on the margin” whether by choice or by force of circumstance. Shifting Margins will embrace the center, the periphery and the bridge between those concepts through the use of two locations “The City” (San Francisco) the perceived cultural and social center and its “marginal” sister city (Oakland) noted center of racial and social unrest.
Featuring works by: ap-art-ment (Cathy Fairbanks and Laura Boles Faw), Raquel Torres Arzola, Victor Barbieri, Jeff Beekman, Jan Blythe, Gioj De Marco, Ellen Dicola, Moritz Fingerhut, Sean Fletcher and Isabel Reichert, Nathan Gorgen, Elena Harvey, Çiğdem Kaya, Leejin Kim, David Leleu, Angela Pryor, Kat Schneck, Christie Ginanni Stepan, Jesse Walton, Brooke White, and Michelle Wilson (with participants from the Alameda County Juvenile Justice Center).
