Snap! snaps back this week with 2023’s first opening night party in their sleek downtown environs, and it’s a banger.
In the main gallery, Cultural Fabric: An Exploration of Identity and Commonality features the work of Brant Slomovic, a photo-essayist based in Toronto.
Slomovic’s cultural identity as a Jewish Canadian man married into an Indian family intersects with his professional identity as a frontline emergency medicine doctor, making his a unique lens focused upon documenting his world travels.
Meanwhile, galleries two and three host paintings, sculpture and photography from Mär Martinez, Diana Zhang, Martha Díaz-Adam and Elise Stürup, who variously claim Syrian, Cuban, Chinese, Lebanese and Dominicana heritage, and explore the juxtapositions and power clashes inherent in American lives with global roots.
7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 3, Snap! Downtown, 420 E. Church St., snaporlando.com, free, reservation requested. Exhibition runs through May 6.
