April 12 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Join us for the Opening Celebration of the multi-sited group exhibition, Seeing through Stone, at the Institute of the Arts and Sciences on April 12, 2024. Seeing through Stone invites viewers to see beyond the current realities of prison, drawing attention to already existing practices of imagining the world otherwise. The exhibition includes more than eighty artists and collectives, sixteen newly commissioned projects, as well as works of video, painting, sculpture, installation, sound and performance.

Enjoy refreshments and food from Epoch Eats Food Truck and an after-hours viewing of the exhibition with remarks at 7 p.m. and a special performance by Explode! Platform at 7:15 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public.

Seeing through Stone is on view at the Institute of the Arts and Sciences April 12, 2024–January 5, 2025. 

Seeing through Stone opens with celebrations at Santa Cruz Barrios Unidos on April 18 and at San José Museum of Art on April 26. See our programming calendar for more details.
