Breaching the Margins is a juried exhibition of works by artists who examine ways in which marginalized groups navigate and work against social exclusion.

Societies often attempt to deny marginalized groups of people avenues for social inclusion and space to articulate self-defined identities. However, art can be an active force that supersedes societal relegations, and a catalyst to give power to groups who were formerly powerless. The selected artists approach these ideas from various points of view, and offer dialogues regarding their rejection of marginalization.

Breaching the Margins was introduced to the global artists’ community as an open call for work of any medium. The 33 artists included in this exhibition were selected from nearly 200 artist-applicants, comprising over 500 submitted pieces.
