This virtual exhibition is loosely based around the idea of the afterimage, the lingering images that one sees after staring at something for too long. The artists in this show deal with the idea of the afterimage both as a visual phenomenon and as a metaphor—thinking about the ways in which the lingering shapes, colors, processes and forms, or the afterimages of personal biographies, cultures, and gentrification affect our vision. Our present and imagined possibilities for the future are colored by the afterimages of our collective and individual histories. As we grapple with the social, cultural, and political systems that have shaped our identities as artists, what will be the afterimages that remain of these systems? How long will these afterimages linger?
