In *** (a stylization of Asterisks), three artists confront the interlocking paradigms of art space as white space, and identity as fixed or nameable. Jami Porter Lara, Erin Mickelson and Kate Ruck maintain artistic practices that are idiosyncratic and interdisciplinary; for this show they contribute prints, tapestries, weaponry, neon signage and a sandbag wall. The artists are linked by their explorations of legacy, inheritance, indigeneity and whiteness. Harnessing personal and cultural meanings, they usher the peripheral and parenthetical to the foreground.
