At a time when the digital world turns our bodies into isolated eyeballs, we must not forget the energy and joy that comes with face-to-face communal engagement. This exhibition explores the body, sociality, choreography, and human congregation. Comprised of painting, photography, sculpture, performance, video and soundtracks, “Marching to the Beat” intends to be a progressive affirmation of human collectivity and a thought-provoking antidote to the factionalization of our global world.

UC Berkeley art historian Julia Bryan-Wilson has written an essay titled “Crowd Crush” in response to the exhibition
