EXCUSE ME, HIGHLIGHTS – VESSEL GALLERY SATELLITE
October 1 @ 10:00 am - December 18 @ 5:00 pmFree
In addition to COVID, AAPI communities now must reconcile injustices of distant and recent past, such as the six Asian women massacred in Atlanta, physical attacks on our most vulnerable elders, racial slurs and threats in communities worldwide; the traumatic events are too long to list. Grief, realization, reflection; our communities are sorting through emotions and losses.
“Excuse Me – Highlights” continues to shine a light on this group of AAPI artists and make their work visible. While we work through adversity, loss and the ongoing uncertainties of COVID, we search for inclusivity, visibility, empathy, and belonging. We are all in need of uplifting the world and one another, and we’re doing just that, together.
Vessel Gallery’s installation of “Excuse Me – Highlights” encourages us to recognize, celebrate, and empower AAPI artists, and provides an opportunity to commit to supporting the arts and its diverse cultures. Above all, this showcase helps us to appreciate this precious moment, the importance of creativity and expression, and to live in hope
Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the Bay Area, we require masks, and all attendees must present proof of vaccination and ID at the door upon arrival. Vaccination proof can be presented in a digital format, physical card, or photo on your phone; the final shot should have been administered at least 14 days prior to the event. Temperature may be taken at the door. Thank you for all your efforts to keep each other safe in our communities!
