Indira Freitas Johnson exhibition at the Evanston Art Center

In The Resonance of Emptiness, Indira Freitas Johnson explores the concept of emptiness and the interdependence of all things. Viewers are offered an aesthetic experience of emptiness and stillness while exploring the shifting distinctions between strength and vulnerability, permanence and decadence, and the extraordinary and the mundane.
