Roadmap to Joy

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, May 2, 2021

Roadmap to Joy is a forthcoming public art exhibition curated by Atiba T. Edwards and Mz. Icar in partnership with The Culture Rooms, FOKUS and Arts and Crafts Holdings. This exhibition will approach the notion of joy as a journey. How do we get there as a collective? As individuals? And what does it look like? What does it feel like?

Artists are asked to submit site-specific works related to the theme of ‘Roadmap to Joy’. Selected works will be printed on exterior vinyl and displayed on the existing windows.

Constance Culpepper is a contemporary artist located in Philadelphia, PA (USA). Her large, vibrantly colored oil paintings primarily depict domestic scenes, including interiors, still life, the female figure, and chairs. The paintings are representational, yet deconstructed, and full of pattern. With her paper collages, Culpepper is more abstract, yet the themes of domesticity can still be found.

Sharing the experiences I have had with race and gender is a catalyst for my work. My experience growing up very protected in a race not completely my own, was not concerning to me as a child. When I was introduced to a mixed race population that was very concerned with labeling and grouping people, the experience was unsettling. From that point, I had to think about race and culture and how they related to my daily performance.
