UnderExposed at Cargill Gallery


Seven artists unflinchingly explore themes of relational trauma, violations of consent, and expressions of gender fluidity. The exhibit includes artworks created from traditional mediums and from unusual materials that speak directly to the politics of the body. Text is a unifying element; many artworks combine imagery and text to convey the emotional weight and historical significance of the written word. UnderExposed reveals connections between self-censorship, oppressive gender norms, and the ongoing abuse of indigenous land via settler-colonialism.

Visit this exhibition at the Cargill Gallery, located on the second floor of Minneapolis Central Library, from April 7 – May 27, 2022. Join us for an artist talk and closing reception in the Gallery on Wednesday, May 25, 6 to 8 p.m.

Contributing artists: Ak Garski, Jamie Kubat, Katayoun Amjadi, Nancy Julia Hicks, Maggie Thompson, Beau Tate, and Kieran Myles-Andrés Tverbakk
