Think Round Fine Arts is pleased to present A Peek Behind the Curtain, an exhibit of painted banners by Nikki Lau. The exhibit will open on January 6, 2018, with a public reception on January 13 from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm. The exhibit will be up through February 28, 2018. 

Nikki Lau was born and raised in San Francisco, CA.  She is an AmeriCorps Alumni and her work in 2011 with Public Allies/AmeriCorps was a pivotal moment in her art practice. Her themes shifted to identity politics and social justice. She uses large scale installations to unpack inequalities and challenge social hierarchies. 

This exhibition is interested in unpacking what it means to be normal. How are we performing identity? Are we performing multiple identities?  Nikki Lau reflects on how otherness has shaped how society treats people. She is interested in the power and privilege dynamics that occur with both the audience and the entertainer as a metaphor for how society formulates who are the oppressors and who are the oppressed.
