“Everything I do is to help people communicate and think differently,” said Vian Sora. Spoken like a true creative. Sora has lived in Louisville since 2009, but was born in Iraq and grew up there during the Saddam Hussein years. This experience influenced her worldview and, of course, her art. Her latest body of work follows her self-assigned mandate of “[going] against the tide.” And then there’s the exhibition title. The intentional spacing between the letters turns it into “nowhere,” “now here” and “no w here” (that “w” refers to former president George W. Bush and war). The opening reception is Nov. 10 from 5-9 p.m.
