This public programming is presented in conjunction with Delano Dunn’s current exhibition Dreams of Fire and Starshine on view through August 10th at Project for Empty Space gallery.

About the Exhibition:

Delano Dunn’s Dreams of Fire and Starshine is a journey through past, present, personal, and potential futures in an intersectional feminist world. It is a contemplation on “real power” versus imaginary power and the internal reconciliation processes that we as a society go through in dealing with those perceptions of power. The overall aesthetic of the exhibition is definitively harkening back to a particular chronological perception of ‘the future’: Dunn pulls bright neon colors, neon lights, iridescent geometries and a Hollywood vibe that is specific to the 1980s.

The complete new body of work, which was created during Dunn’s year-long residency at Project for Empty Space, is presented in three distinct and nuanced phases. Understanding the intricate narratives of each section is an integral element to understanding the wholistic overture of the exhibition.
