Niki Lopez’s 10th annual group art exhibition at the 1310 Gallery

Posted on 11 August 2018 by Niki lopez

What’s Your Elephant Art Exhibit to Opens with Compelling Art and Performances

 

Opening Night + Performance: Saturday, August 18th | 1310 Gallery | 6pm-10pm

Artist Niki Lopez will be curating her 10th Annual Art Show at Fort Lauderdale’s 1310 Gallery. She was recently featured on the People Magazine Investigates: Cults series on the Investigation Discovery channel. There, Lopez shared her story of being raised in an abusive cult that thrived on secrecy, until she and other survivors broke their silence, which ultimately brought down the cult and its leader.

This experience inspired her to create a space in her art to share her “elephant” (an obvious truth that is being ignored or otherwise unaddressed) and to passionately provide opportunities for others to do the same. What’s Your Elephant uses a combination of art exhibits, interactive installations, and workshops to provoke and facilitate discussions unveiling issues like gender, discrimination, and abuse.
