Taking Time: A solo exhibition by Chakaia Booker

June 22 - October 19, 2024

Opening Festival: June 22, 4-7pm

Swamp surrounded by ferns and trees

"Handle With Care," Chakaia Booker, 2010

Chakaia Booker’s work has spanned decades with an intentionality of practice and purpose. She chooses discarded tires to create beauty from detritus, and elegance from industry in a way that both simply is, and yet has strong underpinnings of social and environmental justice. Her solo exhibition at The Current, both inside and out, highlights beauty and hardship, tradition and caretaking and dives deep into Booker’s practice, highlighting a monumental outdoor installation in the Town of Stowe, while inside The Current, her photographs, prints, and indoor sculptures fill the galleries. The work asks the viewers to take time to listen, lean in, to contemplate, to heal, to work, to create, to be.
