The Community Arts Internship Program (CAIP) offers young artists and activists the opportunity to exercise leadership skills and engage with their community by exploring relevant social and personal issues through the visual arts. This semester CAIP interns will be working with artist, Eliza Gregory, and examining the relationship between justice and representation. How do you feel accurately represented in the world? How could you accurately represent someone else? Using an expanded understanding of relationships between justice and representation, interns will identify questions they are interested in representing and then explore those questions in a way that invites an audience to witness and perhaps even participate in that exploration. The culminating exhibition will showcase these inquires in SoEx’s gallery space from May 19-28, 2016.
