Human as a Vessel

Friday, August 23rd to Friday, November 1st

St. Paul Student Center, Larson Gallery

These works are about the uncanny effects of feeling on the human body. From fear to empathy, trauma to memory, growth to decay; the human is a vessel shaped by every lived experience. Each work explores how the body may choose to repress memories, create connections and a sense of belonging, or even dissociate from familiar imagery or experiences.

Black Masculinity: Narratives & The Power They Hold

Thursday, October 10th to Sunday, February 2nd

Coffman Memorial Union, Second Floor Gallery

In Lucy Owiredu’s photography exhibition, she offers a counternarrative to society’s portrayal of black masculinity. While society may expect black bodies to be strong but emotionless, she creates a space where vulnerability is valued equally as strength. Lucy Owiredu is a Ghanaian American photographer. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, she explores the art of storytelling through conceptual visuals that speak without words, are heard without sound, and communicate without barriers.
