Rooted: A Community Archive Project

In the fall 2021 semester, Soljour, in partnership with the Yonkers Public Library, curated Rooted: A Community Archive Project. Featuring the work of artists Evan Bishop, Katori Walker, Haifa Bint-Kadi, and Sola Olosunde, the exhibit consists of multiple works in a range of media organized around themes of collaboration and storytelling. It includes quilts, sculpture, photography, and paintings. There are couches for comfortable seating, books related to art, and a soundtrack with multiple interviews, music, and sound. The exhibit presents a multi-layered story about identity, community, and history within Yonkers and greater New York State.
