Context Exhibitions

the Context Series (2015 - Present) Christion examines the ways in which Christianity particularly interpretations of scripture has been used to generate racism and ignorance while promoting the values and standards of its Eurocentric leadership. Through the context series, Christion explores Rev James H. Cone’s theory that transcendence (or the act of rising above the limits or boundaries of culturally fixed identity) comes from the ability and the context to express and articulate of one’s own definition of self.

“When you can express and articulate what’s happening to you, you have a measure of transcendence over it. It gives you speech, it gives you self-definition and when you have self-definition and not defined by the world then you transcend”.
