Four Elements Art Series

Part of the Four Elements Art Series

The FOUR Elements Art Series (2016-2018) was a new, vital platform for artists working in a range of media and at different stages of their careers to present their ideas. In addition to furthering their own artistic practices and experimentation, artists were also invited to respond directly to, and activate, the space through unique classes, actions, happenings, and events.

The mission of the Art Series was to incubate community exchange addressing issues around health and movement. Hosted by Four Elements Fitness – a WOC owned gym that offers a variety of services specifically for LGBTQIA, POC, SW, and local groups working with at-risk individuals – a core component of this series is to recenter marginalized voices, bringing critical insight and a more well-rounded dialogue into the public realm.
