Tufts Art Galleries Reception, Performance

Thursday, October 6, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Tufts University Art Galleries presents a reception for its current exhibition “The Sun Rises in the West and Sets in the East” and a performance of “Four Moments of the Sun” by Nyugen E. Smith. The exhibition, on view through December 11, brings together 11 artists who address themes of social and political disorder and instability from local and global perspectives through the poetic language of the art of our time. Employing the media of film, installation, photography and performance, the artists in the exhibition ask non-didactic, open-ended questions that seek to encourage debate and dialogue on inequities and disasters instigated by the lingering remnants of colonialism.  “Four Moments of the Sun” (2022) is a new performance by Nyugen E. Smith that draws upon African and African diasporic spiritual traditions related to light and the metaphysical world as a way to reimagine hegemonic structures throughout history. In this performance, the artist employs the use of mirrors, which serve as objects for introspection, as well as portals into other states of being, opening up a space where truth is revealed and reflected.
