Greensboro, N.C. - The Center for Visual Artists (CVA) announces a new exhibition opening September 2, 2022. Personhood is a small group show featuring the work of five talented area artists: Aliyah Bonnette, Jessica Bloch-Schulman, Jesse Hoyle, Kathryn Fulp, and Tre Wilkes. 

The Wikipedia description of personhood notes that “the concept of personhood is difficult to define in a way that is universally accepted, due to its historical and cultural variability and the controversies surrounding its use in some contexts. Capacities or attributes common to definitions of personhood can include human nature, agency, self-awareness, a notion of the past and future, and the possession of rights and duties, among others.”[6]

The five artists selected for this exhibit explore this concept using the human figure - whether depicting themselves or others – in their artwork in a variety of media, including painting/drawing, photography and film, collage, textiles, and clay. 

“I am excited to see work from these very different artists together in the gallery and hear what conversations emerge from the viewing and presentation of work, especially within the context of what it means to be a person,” said Devon McKnight, CVA Art + Community Coordinator. 

CVA will host an opening reception for Personhood on First Friday, September 2, 6-9pm at the CVA Gallery located inside the downtown Greensboro Cultural Center, 200 North Davie St.
