Root Spells is a Future Residency art show featuring Plants from Home and the Queer Ecology Hanky Project at White Page Gallery on Friday October 25 from 7 to 10pm.
Plants from Home is a graphic exploration of the plant allies that keep us connected amidst distance and longing. Andrea Narno (Mexico City) and Vanessa Adams (New Orleans) portray the plants that have helped them cultivate a sense of belonging and grounding across borders and along vast and complex loving territories.
The Queer Ecology Hanky Project is 80 artist bandanas from across the United States, Canada, and Mexico exploring interconnectivity and desire. These hankies investigate homosexual and homosocial behavior in the natural world. They explore the interdependence of mushrooms, mycelium, and other living beings and the possibility of building sustainability and resilience. This project is curated by Mary Tremonte and Vanessa Adams.
Opening October 25 at The White Page, 3400 Cedar Ave. 7-10pm.
Open gallery hours: Sunday, October 27-Wednesday, October 30, 12-4pm
