Thresholds of Liminality
The Invisibility Collective Bi-Annual Invitational Exhibition
December 10, 2022 – January 28, 2023
Radian Gallery, 440 Brannan St, San Francisco
Liminal: a sensory threshold, barely perceptible or capable of eliciting a response.
Liminality: a liminal state of transition between one stage and the next, especially between major stages in one’s life.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA—The Invisibility Collective and Radian Gallery are pleased to present their second bi-annual invitational group exhibition: Thresholds of Liminality. Works in various media explore those unwitnessed or imperceptible states and experiences of transformation. Artists include The Invisibility Collective members Susan R. Kirshenbaum, Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen, Samira Shaheen, Christopher M. Tandy, and invited artists Joseph Abbati, Vin Seaman, Allan Rosenfield, Rell Rushin, Na Omi Judy Shintani, and Leif Larson.
The Invisibility Collective is a multi-generational collaborative group of nationally acclaimed artists, curators, and social activists exploring the deep experiences and complexity of the concept of Invisibility. Formed during shelter-in-place as a way to connect and share deep discussion from different perspectives, to date, members of the collective are located in the USA, with concentrations in the SF Bay Area and Pennsylvania. In 2020, The Invisibility Collective and Radian Gallery presented their first invitational exhibition: Seen × Unseen. In their second exhibition: Thresholds of Liminality, artists explore the un- or under-perceived process of transition and the moments at which something might happen, cease to happen, take effect, or become true. Acting as revealers, guides, mapmakers, documenters, whisperers, and companions, the artists in this exhibition bear witness to these thresholds, centering experiences whose great meaning is undetectable by those not within the experience of transition.
Thresholds of Liminality on view at Radian Gallery December 10, 2022 to January 28, 2023. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, December 10, 2022, from 3 to 6pm, and a closing happy hour is scheduled for Friday, January 27, 2023, from 4 to 6pm. Additional performances and events will be held throughout the exhibition. For more information, visit radiangallery.com and theinvisibilitycollective.com.
