Gallery AWA presents The Phantom Wall; The Pervasive Politics of Prejudice, an exhibition by Jorge Cruz in collaboration with AWA Lighting Designers. The opening reception will be Saturday October 7th, 6-8pm.
The Phantom Wall is a wall made of light that represents the walls we carry inside our heads; it stands as a physical and ideological symbol of division and personal stagnation. Jorge Cruz and Gallery AWA are delighted to collaborate on realizing a physical representation and discursive space for a topic matter that is unfortunately of utmost social pertinence, and would like to invite the public to engage in this discussion upon The Phantom Wall’s opening.
