Exhibit: Gabriel Sosa’s “No Vehicles in the Park”

December 28, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Gabriel Sosa_But there is no evidence,

Gabriel Sosa works primarily with language and its inherent shortcomings, ambiguities, and implications. In No Vehicles in the Park, Sosa’s first solo museum exhibition, he uses drawing to examine how meaning is derived from—and can be manipulated in—an array of legal documents and court decisions. The exhibition title stems from a legal exercise in which participants debate the definition of a vehicle, exposing the limitations of a single word. The immediacy and adaptability that drawing provides results in a layered exploration of how we understand and interpret language in judicial contexts, including recent decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court. In this new body of work, Sosa pushes us to consider the contradictions in the American legal system, the impact of the past on the present, and how we seek comfort in difficult times.

The exhibit runs through Jan. 8.
