The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery presents a program of rotating contemporary art exhibitions on the campus of Biola University. Located in the greater Los Angeles area, the Green Art Gallery is well positioned to represent a vital Christian worldview within the critical dialogue of contemporary visual art and to produce engaging exhibitions that grapple with issues concerning the intersection of faith with art and culture. The Green Art Gallery also provides professional development opportunities for Biola art students through gallery exhibitions and internships.

AND WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR: STORIES FROM THE MARGINS, brings together a diverse group of artists who respond to division and injustice by highlighting the stories of oppressed and marginalized people. At times these stories point to differences among us and the very real struggles faced by outsiders in our society; at other points the work focuses on our common-ground despite difference in an effort to bridge the divide. The exhibition title references an exchange between Jesus and another religious leader in the biblical story of the Good Samaritan. As the religious leader seeks to narrowly define who is covered by the command to “Love your neighbor,” Jesus instead tells a moral tale that centers on the love shown by a Samaritan man (a cultural outsider) to a man who had been beaten, robbed, and left for dead. At the end of the biblical encounter Jesus instructs us to, “Go and do likewise” — show mercy and love to all those in need.

As our mind lies dormant, the line between the real and the surreal becomes lucid. Here our subconscious is awakened. This show aims to generate a space where artists have the ability and freedom to explore their dreams, memories, fears, and unspoken thoughts. This juried exhibition features nineteen student artists who have accessed these thoughts and have turned them into tangible works of art. These thoughts and ideas have expressed themselves as a functioning mess. Our minds are constantly flooded with images, ideas and feelings that are all at once chaotic, yet purposeful. The show is a product of these fleeting dormant forms that lie beneath the surface of our consciousness. Viewers will be challenged with engaging content that may evoke feelings of unrest and awe. How might theses feelings engage our own minds? How might diving into the mind of another shape our identities? Each work was intentionally chosen for their interconnectedness with each other and their attempt to delve into these ideas. Welcome to the subconscious.
