Of Other Spaces, is an exhibition by The Black Infinity Collective and composed of work by artists of color, taking it's conceptual cues from from Of Other Spaces: Utopias and Heterotopias by philosopher Michel Foucault. In this writing, Foucault makes a detailed critique of societal structures, social norms, and our relationship to space, while proposing the possibility for a new set of relationships. The artists in the show use a range of imagery and language to answer or question the ways in which we inhabit our realities. Of Other Spaces is driven by imagining new modes of belonging in diversely populated environments, where space can potentially unfold perpetually. This show is a prequel to the Black Infinity's forthcoming summer exhibition "Pull-Up" exploring; gentrification, diaspora, and immigration.
