Oolite Arts Gallery
Oct. 16 – Dec. 15, 2019
On The Road ll is an exhibition series curated by Larry Ossei-Mensah highlighting the works of artists he encounters while traveling around the globe. The exhibition is loosely inspired by Jack Kerouac’s 1957 Beat Generation novel On the Road, which explores the travels of young men across postwar America; the book’s title and historical context galvanize Ossei-Mensah’s interrogation of contemporary issues of mobility, freedom, and identity at a time marked by political and societal unease.
Larry Ossei-Mensah has compiled a reading list recommended by the various artists in the show that has in some way shaped the work, practice, or interests of the artists.
Farley Aguilar, William Marcellus Armstrong, Amna Asghar, Tiff Massey, Gisela McDaniel, Osman Khan, Ernesto Oroza, Gean Moreno, Pat Phillips, Johanne Rahaman, Monica Sorelle
