Realms of Refuge will bring together for the first time new works by eight of the most dynamic artists working today: Dominic Chambers, Allana Clarke, Basil Kincaid, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Suchitra Mattai, Michi Meko, Devan Shimoyama, and Alisa Sikelianos-Carter. The works collectively speak to the desire to retreat from the oppressive gaze, towards a safe space for creativity and renewal.

“Rest and stillness are essential to the creative act,” says curator Chanelle Lacy, Associate Director, Programming Manager for Kavi Gupta. “Realms of Refuge can be literal or symbolic zones—anywhere the intellect is nurtured, instinct is unhindered, and the soul is free to wander.”
