re-the art of everyday
Re: The Art of Everyday Politics is an exhibition in four acts of artists’ perspectives on everyday life. Utilizing performance and installation, Baker explores internal and external perceptions of community, Partiai examines the intricacies of interpersonal relationships, Rodriguez deconstructs environments to reconstruct their politics, and Zech explores the self and the everyday. The interactions between these four acts are not limited to simultaneity. Each of the artists’ pieces stands alone, but can be presented as one piece.

Amber’s work centers on family, community and togetherness by focusing on the lives and stories of individuals she makes contact with everyday.

Amber’s desire is to continue to grow in her craft and help make dance more available to students in low income communities.
