Resurgence speaks to the current situation in both New York City and around the world. As we emerge from the pandemic we have an opportunity to reshape the fabric of the society we live in. There is no need to return to life as it was, rather there is a call to action to improve the lives of everyone. We need a cultural, environmental, and communal resurgence with the aim of a better future for everybody. Each artist in the show addresses resurgence with a unique voice, and their works call attention to the ways in which we can alter our perspective and actions in order to prosper together.

Artists have a vital role in this moment through their work and the messages therein. The artists in Resurgence were chosen because each addresses various aspects of the theme. Rob Reynolds, Lionel Cruet, LeRone Wilson, Holly Lowen, Seren Morey, and Matt Moser-Clark raise environmental issues. Social justice themes are addressed in the works of Kevin Claiborne, Jason Wallace, Boogie, and Heather Haynes. Joe Woolhead, Todd Stone, Ricardo Arango, and Kerry Irvine all have pieces that honor work, a pivotal component in rebuilding the communities around us. Carlo Maria Mariani, Max Pellegrini, Taezoo Park, Danny Aron, Chellis Baird, Jimbroski Kanobi Chuganoly, Ricardo Arango, Alex Nero, and Elaine Turner all speak to a shared experience and the interconnectedness between us. Ashanté Kindle, Komikka Patton, Miguel Angel Payano, and Anna Weyant have works full of beauty and intricacy that speak to ideals of beauty but that also reach well beyond the initial aesthetic impression. AP the Angel, Patrick Bayly, and Parker Calvert all homage NYC in their works and present vignettes that typify this beautiful metropolis. Olive Allen uses tongue in cheek in her pieces to highlight ironic aspects in both the digital and physical art world. There are myriad more shared connections among the artists than the aforementioned themes. Hopefully Resurgence inspires a dialogue and critical reflection on the works and ideas presented in the exhibition.
