Project for Empty Space is pleased to present It is astonishing the lengths to which a person, or a people, will go in order to avoid a truthful mirror, an exhibition in collaboration with the For Freedoms initiative. The exhibition was inspired by and takes a line from James Baldwin’s short story “This Morning, This Evening, So Soon,” and explores the themes that are still relevant over half a century after Baldwin’s work was published. Participating artists in It is astonishing the lengths to which a person, or a people, will go in order to avoid a truthful mirror include Amy Khoshbin, Bang Geul Han, DARNstudio (David Anthone & Ron Norsworthy), Dominique Duroseau, Kambui Olujimi, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Melvin Harper, and Shaun Leonardo.

A public reception for the exhibition will take place on Wednesday, November 7th, from 6 - 8 PM at Project for Empty Space in Newark, NJ. It is astonishing the lengths to which a person, or a people, will go in order to avoid a truthful mirror will be on view through January 2019. For more information click HERE.
