'Where Do We Go From Here?', Site-Specific Installation

Where Do We Go From Here? documents the story of changes occurring in the city infrastructure by experimenting with the language of construction materials: their structure, graphics, textures, and juxtaposition with nature. The site-specific installation by Indianapolis-based Shamira Wilson, employs rusted construction ReMesh in an oxidation printing method, transferring gridded rust imprints onto fabric.

Wilson is interested in the transformation that takes place during the rust printing process, exploring the meaning of these materials by removing them from their expected context, and thinking about how they speak to the fabric of our everyday lives.

Located at Milhaus, 460 Virginia Avenue, Indianapolis, IN

Solo exhibition at the City Gallery in the Harrison Center

‘Shamira Wilson creates minimal abstract work that explores textile motifs. Inspired by the African Diaspora, her work alludes to the storytelling qualities found in African American narrative textiles. With her current series, Shamira is documenting the story of the changes that are happening within the city infrastructure by using rusted metal to imprint grids onto fabric, leaving an impression reminiscent of quilts, maps, and city grids.’

Date & Time: Friday, October 4th, 6pm – 9pm

Art for Change Residency, New Delhi

‘The Art for Change International Artist Residency is an intense 2-week opportunity for seven international artists to create and learn alongside seven Indian artists in a collective exploration of a particular theme. The residency ends with a gallery exhibition of works produced.  

The 7th Annual Art for Change International Artist Residency 2020 will be held in New Delhi from February 23 to March 8, 2020 on the theme “What to do with Difference? - Art and Artist as Bridge.” The Exhibition of works produced will run in a New Delhi gallery from March 7 to 12, 2020.

About the Theme

Diversity is built into the design of things, difference contributes beauty and complexity to life.  Yet ethnicity, politics, religion, and culture increasingly are the cause of profound divisions in our world.  What do we do with the things that set us apart?  
The Art for Change International Residency will explore the reality, challenges, aesthetics, and possibilities of ‘difference,’ in the artist’s life and in a local context—with global implications.  How does art make sense of difference?  What divides and connects us as human beings? What is the potential for art and artist as bridge?’
