I Can See Clearly Now 

Aaron Peters & Lydia Smith

On view at Hopkins Hall Gallery  

I Can See Clearly Now is a collaborative installation that exists as a mix between painting, sculpture, and set. Throughout the pandemic, we built barriers and reinforced our borders. We covered our faces with cloth masks, erected plexiglass panels between desks and seats, and closed international passageways. As the vaccine becomes more available, we hear Jimmy Cliff singing: “I can see clearly now the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way.” Our barriers are not erased, but we can at least see or even walk over them. In this experimental exhibition, we layer, puncture, and weave together everyday materials that viewers can look through and move around in response to our current landscape.

The exhibition will feature additional collaborations and interventions that take place while the exhibition is up. Collaborators include Jackie Courchene, Brett Davis, Tom Dugdale, Miranda Holmes, Scott Monin, Layla Muchnik-Benali, and Hannah Parrett (Painting 1 class).

Summer Series is a multi-venue program that showcases short- and long-term projects such as gallery exhibitions, performances, audience participatory work, discussions, research demos, and more. This series encourages collaboration, multidisciplinary approaches and seeks ideas that foster conversations, relationships, or careers, that represent diverse perspectives.
