Seat’s Taken is a group exhibition designed to continue the community-wide dialogue initiated by ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center’s recent exhibition, RACE: Are We So Different?. Seat’s Taken aims to move the discussion beyond race to examine the larger issue of why human beings wrong one another, as race is just one variable in a complex equation. The exhibition examines human interaction, questions the way we choose to navigate the world, and challenges our reactions to the unfamiliar, uncomfortable, and different.

ARTISTS INCLUDE:

Angelo Arnold, Nick Cave, Frohawk Two Feathers, Vanessa German, Amber Kempthorn, Stella Marrs, Liz Maugans, Todd Pavlisko, Alix Smith, Nathan Vincent, and Naoko Wowsugi.
