DACA Lounge Exhibition Opens February 15

Exhibit that Invites the public to Dream with “DREAMers” opens February 15

 

The Sarah Spurgeon Gallery will host an installation by visiting artist Horatio Law. The opening events will take place on Thursday, February 15, beginning with a lecture by Law at 4:00 p.m. in Randall Hall, room 117. The lecture will be followed by a reception in the gallery from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

 

The exhibit, titled DACA LoungeA Dream Sanctuary, is inspired by the plight and courage of DACA students, who dare to 'dream' despite their difficult and uncharted circumstances. The DACA Lounge invites gallery visitors to dream in solidarity, encouraging quietude and calmness. Inside the darkened gallery, the exhibit features glowing, cloud-like, and inflatable lounging platforms of various sizes for both groups and individuals. Motion sensors control ambient sounds and LED lights, creating a space conducive to thoughtful contemplation, imagination, and meditation.

 

Horatio Hung-Yan Law is a Portland-based installation and public artist. Born in Hong Kong to Chinese parents, he moved to the United States at the age of sixteen.  With his multi-cultural background, Law explores subjects such as the immigrant’s experience, trans-cultural adoptions, and reinterpretations of cultural icons.

DACA LoungeA Dream Sanctuary will remain on display through March 14. Sarah Spurgeon Gallery is located in Randall Hall on Dean Nicholson Boulevard and is open weekdays 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and on weekends, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The gallery will be closed on February 19 for the Presidents Day holiday.
