108 – Resilience

Spring / Summer 2023

Art has the power to share resilient experiences, stories, and practices. In this Resilience issue, Esse invites us to celebrate that which in contemporary art teaches us to persevere despite rejection, to stand up again after falling, to make it through our disillusionment. We hope to respond to the difficulties that try to overwhelm us by highlighting the need, as a community, to surpass pessimism, to transform our vulnerability into empowerment, to choose not naïve optimism but a certain strategic realism. Resilience is a gigantic challenge.
