The Breadth of Distance

Curated by: Alize Zorlutuna
Dates: February 4, 2019 - April 5, 2019
we carry continents,
cross oceans,
traverse vast distances while still.
the scent of comfort,
is also longing.
what goes unsaid,
a kind of knowing.
how do elsewheres live in the body?
in dreams?
half-remembered tongues.
in what cannot be named.
Bringing together photography, video, installation, and sculpture, these artworks shift across geographies, cultural perspectives, and time. Considering grief, longing, care and resilience, they articulate how relationships to place, representation, and belief shape who we are and how we move in the present.
This exhibition asks us to reckon with how we came to be here on this land. Whether we are Indigenous, multi-generational settlers, or recent immigrants, our current moment demands we think through how we might build mutual understanding and empathy while recognizing our many differences.
