The Power of Vulnerability

Loading...

"All art is a kind of confession, more or less oblique. All artists, if they are to survive, are forced at last, to tell the whole story; to vomit the anguish up."

- James Baldwin

 

Curated by: Tesser Arts Collective based out of Philadelphia

 

What does it mean to reject the myth of vulnerability as weakness and instead embrace it, as Baldwin suggests, as a truth telling or testimony? What do we risk in exposing the fragile pieces of ourselves we have always protected or hidden away? In what way is essential for connection, creativity, and survival?

 

For the exhibition "The Power of Vulnerability", we celebrate artwork that takes a nuanced approch to exploring the role of personal vulnerability as a site for love, growth, liberation, and transformation.
