UICA's Exhibitions Curator
Trekking across the state from the Motor City, Juana Williams comes to UICA from Detroit, MI, where she earned her BA in Art and MA in Art History, both from Wayne State University. As the Exhibitions Curator, Juana spends her days at UICA narrating stories and building connections through curation. She also enjoys reading and traveling, often simultaneously.
Breaching the Margins
May 10 – Aug 18, 2019
Breaching the Margins is a juried exhibition of works by artists who examine ways in which marginalized groups navigate and work against social exclusion.
Societies often attempt to deny marginalized groups of people avenues for social inclusion and space to articulate self-defined identities. However, art can be an active force that supersedes societal relegations, and a catalyst to give power to groups who were formerly powerless. The selected artists approach these ideas from various points of view, and offer dialogues regarding their rejection of marginalization.
