Join us for a new show at the Beacon Gallery by artist Caron Tabb. The show runs through Jan. 30, 2022.

Artist statement:

The election of Donald Trump; the racial murders of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Ahmed Arbery; and the endemic issues surfaced by the COVID outbreak caused a profound reckoning for many, including myself, and have deeply impacted my artwork. Over the last four years I found myself spending significant time engaging in difficult conversations where I questioned my role, responsibilities, and culpability as a white Jewish woman. The question that occupied me most was how I use my privilege to bend the arc of justice. What is required of me at this point in time?

The show “Humanity Is Not a Spectator Sport” attempts to offer a deeply personal, visual response to this reckoning, in a way that intends to offer both a personal portrait and a call to action to the community. The conceptual mixed media work in this show draws heavily from core Jewish tenets and my deep Jewish identity and interchanges between the personal and the universal. This show is my response to the concept that one must use privilege to effect change. The show addresses systemic racism, inequality, and our shared humanity. It is a call to opt in. I hope exhibition viewers will be challenged by what they see and will be inspired to engage in difficult conversations as a result of engaging with these works. It is only through stepping back and considering our role and participation (or lack thereof) in society that we can ultimately choose to be active up-standers.
