Boundless Light: Sunil Garg

Using light, form, color, and movement, Sunil Garg creates site-specific installations to turn NJCU’s Visual Arts Gallery into a multi-sensory environment which visitors can freely explore. Through Garg’s artistry, ordinary materials such as paper, chicken wire, and PVC are morphed into ethereal matter, constantly changing impressions, and reflecting colored lights. Although technologies enable this environment, they are almost invisible and visitors can get lost within a limitless space.

Common Language: Dahlia Elsayed

Common Language presents a series of works on paper and a site-specific ceramic installation by artist Dahlia Elsayed. Her allegorical landscapes use a symbolic vocabulary rooted in cartography, comics, and cosmology. Through Elsayed’s visual narrative, the exhibition explores the possibilities of transcultural visual communication, the potentials and limits of language, and the ways in which image and text modify each other for alternative meanings.

Neighbors Near and Far: Ibou Ndoye

Ibou Ndoye’s paintings are populated with the “neighbors” of his homeland Senegal, as well as his adopted homes, Hoboken and Jersey City. They wrestle, play music, and dress in colorful garments, for example. During his recent visit to Senegal, after eighteen years of living in the United States, he rediscovered his artistic and cultural roots and expresses them through dynamic forms and colors.

Uprooted: Abdebunmi Gbadebo

Rejecting traditional art materials associated with Whiteness, the Newark-based artist, Adebunmi Gbadebo chose human Black hair as her primary medium. Varied locs of hair climb up a wall in her sculpture, Dada. Hair is also embedded in her prints, with images referencing her ancestry. Even though having been “uprooted,” these hair locs carry histories and memories within their DNA of people of the African diaspora.
