Visions of Transcendence: Creating Space in East and West

This exhibit highlights the resilience and creative power of people deprived of their freedom or their own place to live.

Reflecting on the parallels and differences between two competing political systems, the exhibition presents a range of artistic forms, including drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media collage, digital media and social art practice. The artwork is created by currently and formerly incarcerated and unhoused persons and their allies from the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, as well as from the United States and Western Europe.

Irrespective of ideological regimes, individual artists and collectives in this exhibition use artistic expression to create their own visionary, transcendent spaces.
