‘he’ pane iki

By Kekha Solis

POSTED:



Synopsis: April A.H. Drexel is the curator of an art exhibit named, “‘a’ mini retort.” This exhibit encourages the viewer to think critically about “how/when/why/ where creative textualities can simultaneously contribute, complicate, and perhaps, distort understanding.” “‘a’ mini retort” runs April 30-June 1 at Mark’s Garage.
