May 24 – July 25 | Art Alley

This juried exhibition invited artists to make site-responsive and socially engaged works of local relevance and international significance charged by the HUB-Robeson Galleries Student Advisory Council. The resulting sculptures, wall drawings, murals, and installations are in care of the five pillars of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership. Exploring labor, care economies, and the collective power and colonial history integral to the term commonwealth, these works recognize the term’s connection to exploitation by looking at generational wealth, land, ownership, and the on-going impacts of these systems on the climate.

The arts are fundamental to our humanity, to our University, and to our world. They inspire us to find understanding and beauty and help us to express our values and diversity across ethnicity, religion, and race.

From critical conversations to writing, image-making, and any number of creative actions; C/O Commonwealth holds space for artworks and artists to use creative methods for examining unequitable structures shaping our lived realities and posits ways that we might come together.

Thank you to the artists, jurors, and HUB-Robeson Galleries advisory council members for their contributions to this exhibition.
