The "Syncope" exhibition which will be presented at both the Main Gallery and the Rooftop Garden, will bring together the diverse community of immigrant artists whose work addresses challenges posed by immigration, cultural transition and the change of environment. From fictional storytelling to activism, from gestures of solidarity to idiosyncratic personal experiences artists work in a variety of interdisciplinary practices of visual and performance arts, reflect on their experiences of immigration and suggest ways to live through and with this experience.

During the opening reception, "The Syncope" exhibition is delighted to feature a special program of four live performances by Katya Grokhovsky, Yali Romagoza, Jean Carla Rodea, and Pei-Ling Ho in collaboration with Emily Smith. These women artists from diverse cultural and artistic backgrounds will share their interdisciplinary practices of performance art, sound, experimental music, movement and dance with the community and present their pieces at the Main Gallery and at the rooftop garden.

This special program also includes screenings of short videos produced by the artists in this show. The screenings will be featured at the rooftop garden during the opening reception. The videos center around the experiences of immigration and highlight the issues of memory, identity, belonging and labor.
