For the past six months the SHIFT residency artists: Francisco echo Eraso, Willa Goettling, Maya Jeffereis, Gabrielle Ondine Mertz, Dario Mohr, and Carrie Sijia Wang, have been activating their shared studio at The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, meeting with professionals, and working on their projects towards a final exhibition. Throughout this time they were committed to diving into their individual processes, exploring their lineages, roots, and upbringings, and sharing distinct voices that encapsulate their rich and complex backgrounds. The results are artworks that capture personal stories of exploration, dedication, and labor that reflect on the history of our nation and reveal a magnitude of cultures and circumstances.
