Kirsten Furlong, gallery director of Boise State’s Blue Galleries and an art lecturer, has work featured in a new virtual exhibition. “We Are More Than A Moment,” organized by Gallery 51 in the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, is described as a call to be heard.

This virtual exhibition is curated by inaugural artist in residence Genevieve Gaignard, a Los Angeles based artist whose work focuses on photographic self-portraiture, sculpture and installation to explore race, femininity, class and their various intersections.

It is this exploration coupled with the nation’s most recent events that inspires the focus of this exhibition. The selected work echoes these themes and exemplifies the long-term prosperity of Black life.
