All In is a group exhibition that explores the intersections between form and urgency. Each work stands as a metaphor for the evidence of the imagination’s questions about life, its ambiguities, secrets, and truths. This is to say that there exists a community of inter-dependent and individual practices, here. Each work embodies its maker and is as unique, experimental and speculative, as the still-unfolding narrative(s) of each artist’s life and His/Her/Their implication(s) to the world(s) to which this exhibition is an invitation. It is an invitation (in)to the speculative interior(s) from which the imagination blooms as a matter of culture/counterculture, and the exploration of “personal knowing” and witnessing. Each work is a personified space of this witnessing and each space is a room for narration. “All In” is, therefore, evidence from the interior(s) and the communication of a deeply held bond between classmates, peers, friends, and fellow journeyers. –LeRonn P. Brooks, PhD
