IT IS A MIRACLE THAT WE ARE STANDING HERE is a visionary compilation of work by emerging artists who celebrate the resilience of their communities, subvert and complicate narrow notions of contemporary identity, and investigate the altered narratives and power systems that pervade their lives.
Both a celebration and an elegy, the show title—inspired by the series from selected artist John William Murphy—alludes to the forces of empowerment, love, and disenfranchisement that have brought us to where we are today.
Featured artists include: José A. Alvarado Jr., Emile Askey, Nilargha Chatterjee, Jorly Flores, Jazmine Dior Johnson, Amanda D. King x Shooting Without Bullets, John William Murphy, Terrance Purdy Jr., Buku Sarkar, and Guanyu Xu.
