Seattle Theatre Group is pleased to invite you to the exhibit launch party for Re:definition 2017!
Re:definition was launched in 2016 with the goal of redefining historic cultural space. With this mission in mind, STG has transformed our Paramount Theatre’s lobby bar into an art gallery. Rotating exhibits throughout the year showcase works from visual artists whose pieces highlight issues of race and social justice, both locally and globally.
The focus of the coming year is to elevate the presence and availability of work created by Indigenous artists, as curated by Tracy Rector.
CURATOR MISSION STATEMENT: The pervasive colonizer mentality of writing and re-writing history, to serve the needs of those in power, is a symptom of "dis-ease" that impacts our global body. As an act of healing, now is the time to decolonize false narratives, spaces and our minds. Re:definition gives us the opportunity to collectively imagine an Indigenous centered future, engineer interwoven fantasies, and carves out a space for Indigenous people to feel acknowledged with honesty, beauty and truth.
