When the Dust Settles at Unpaved Gallery

When the Dust Settles
Curated by Emily Silver
Opening reception: Saturday January 19 3-7pm.
When the dust settles, a moment of clarity arises. The desert is an artist’s haven where expansive skies avows creativity. The Mojave Desert has become a pilgrimage for artists coming to pay homage to their practice. This inaugural exhibition is a collection of works created by artists who share the commonality of physical transplantation from a concentrated asphalt grid. Landing amongst the Joshua trees, an epoch moment has begun to germinate.

MOVING THE MEMORIES, a documentary film I shot and directed for Mil-Tree was selected to screen at the Palm Springs Dance Festival as part of their inaugural film series. The screening is scheduled for March 9th, 2019 with a brief Q&A.
