Hedges, Edges, Dirt

Oct 17, 2018 – Jan 6, 2019

Hedges, Edges, Dirt presents new and recent work by Abbas Akhavan, Jonathas de Andrade, David Hartt, Julianne Swartz, and Pascale Marthine Tayou. Each artist will show a single project or body of work that explores how we relate to our surroundings and to each other, when rooted in place or in transition. Through a range of aesthetic approaches and global perspectives, these artists pose pointed questions, including: What does it mean to perceive ourselves and others as native or non-native, as welcome guests or invasive species? How do we navigate tangible and intangible boundaries? How do expressions of power, dominance, and vulnerability permeate our experience of place, self, and others? This international group of artists deploy play, beauty, and poetry to complicate and reimagine relationships among nature and culture, bodies and spaces.
 

Co-curated by Assistant Curator Amber Esseiva and Chief Curator Stephanie Smith.
