The Soul is a Wanderer is the latest iteration of Oklahoma Contemporary’s biennial ArtNow exhibition, featuring recent art from Oklahoma. This version, conceived by guest curator Lindsay Aveilhé, brings together approximately 15 artists working across the state in painting, sculpture, video, performance, photography and ceramics. Together, the works in this exhibition will evoke shared histories and interconnected experiences, inviting viewers to map their own futures in and beyond the region.
ArtNow: The Soul is a Wanderer is a collaboration between Oklahoma Contemporary and Aveilhé, an independent curator and researcher from Tulsa.
