The Soul Is a Wanderer is the latest iteration of Oklahoma Contemporary’s biennial ArtNow, highlighting new and recent art from a selection of artists active in the state. Thirteen cross-generational artists come together in this exhibition organized by Tulsa-based guest curator Lindsay Aveilhé. Taking its title and inspiration from a line in the poem A Map to the Next World (2000), by former United States Poet Laureate Joy Harjo, the exhibition explores past, present and future moments of passage, reckoning, and renewal.

Multiple Voices is the first public artwork in the United States by Eva Schlegel, the Austria-based artist known for engineering steel and mirrors into spectacular, architectonic sculptures. Working with materials similar to the arts center’s new building,
Schlegel created a series of polished and translucent surfaces that catch and reflect light and parts of the surrounding environment, encouraging visitors to gather, play and learn.
Poems by Steve Bellin-Oka, Kimberly Blaeser and Joy Harjo appear in blurred form on glass panels, registering each poem as part of the sculpture, but rendered cryptic to the viewer.

Descendants of the Black 1000: Flight from Oklahoma Black Towns to Canada features the work of Canadian artist Donna Paris and photographer David Ofori Zapparoli. A selection of 12 photographs with corresponding oral history audio recordings reveals the deep connections between Black Canadians and Oklahoma, from where many of the portrait sitters’ forebears hail. Through photographs, interviews, and archival materials, Descendants of the Black 1000 creates a fuller picture of how Black history in Oklahoma had an international reach, going beyond the state and connecting communities across the continent.
