The Ronald H Silverman Gallery at Cal State LA is pleased to present a new art exhibition, Memories of Tomorrow’s Sunrise, opening Wednesday, June 8, 2022 from 5pm-9pm. The exhibition poetically investigates concepts of legacy, personal relationships, family ancestry, cultural identity, and the historical struggles of being human from thirteen artists with varied perspectives and backgrounds. Memories of Tomorrow’s Sunrise includes installation, photography, painting, sculpture, video art, auditory art, performance art, and interactive experiences.
“Someday, all of us in this present moment will become the memories of tomorrow’s sunrise. This exhibition is a journey into how we as artists fit into and find ourselves among the collective narrative. It’s about how we make contributions to society and create a legacy through our art.” - Jason Jenn, co-curator and artist.
The exhibition is the second in a series exploring the intersection of art and healing. The first, Sanctuary of the Aftermath, opened in 2021 at Angels Gate Cultural Center and was featured in Americans for the Arts and We Rise LA’s Mental Health Awareness program.
“...this exhibition with its installations, video, and auditory art proves that artists can work at the top of their game even at the most challenging times.” - Edward Goldman, Art Matters, 2021
Memories of Tomorrow’s Sunrise recognizes the role of ancestors, blood families, chosen families, and mentors alongside the traumas, tragedies, and teachings in making us who we are today. Despite the overwhelming issues facing the continued coexistence of humanity and nature, the artworks examine elements of the past to illuminate possibilities for the future. The gallery becomes a place for visitors to find solace, witness meaningful stories, and make necessary connections.
