So Close

International Online Juried Group Exhibiton
Exhibition Dates: June 22 - July 12, 2020

So Close refers to a state of unity, of being united or joined together, but also to the idea of a near miss, the almost, and not-quite-there. We invited artists to interpret this theme in relationship to space, process, representation, and material. This work responds to various states of closeness or absence and offers a moment to investigate expectation, proximity, intimacy, vacancy, and omission.

Curated by Krista Brand and Mana Mehrabian
