Location: Gallery 2 & Main Gallery
The artists featured in A trace is not a map employ photography, painting, video, and sculpture to explore the complexity of community in its familial, geographic, and imagined narratives and forms. Attending to the symbiotic relationship between hope and loss, joy and struggle, and illusion and disillusionment, the works on view resist oversimplifications about identity — instead presenting a spectrum of experience and possibilities of being.
