Mara Duvra art

One of the works by artist Mara Duvra to display at Juxtaposition Arts.

Juxtaposition Arts will present the work of Minnesota-based visual artist Mara Duvra in the 2007 Emerson Gallery on view Feb. 11 – April 6.

Duvra’s current body of work, “Tending: Meditations on Interiority and Blackness,” is focused on centering softer visual representations of women of color, using poetic and ephemeral imagery to understand Blackness beyond public identities. The work addresses what it is to be hyper-visible and simultaneously unseen.

The opening reception and artist talk will be held Feb. 14 at 7 p.m. Gallery admission and all events are free and open to the public.

“Tending” is about the quiet and quotidian, the still and meditative. With photographic images, poetry, found objects, and small sculptural arrangements, Duvra seeks to create an environment that encourages stillness and contemplation of interior landscapes.
