The Closer Together Things Are - exhibition at UWAGExport this event to calendar

Thursday, September 14, 2017 — 7:00 PM to Saturday, October 28, 2017 — 5:00 PM EDT

The University of Waterloo Art Gallery (UWAG) presents its latest exhibition, The Closer Together Things Are, exploring the space between difference and similarity that arises from intense observation.

montage of two old film imagesThe Closer Together Things Are features the work of artists Kathleen Hearn, Ève K. Tremblay, Laura Letinsky, Micah Lexier & Dave Dyment, Micah Lexier & Roula Partheniou, Rhonda Weppler & Trevor Mahovsky, Luke Painter, Chris Kline, and Roula Partheniou.

The exhibition focuses on the proximity of time, heredity, frottage, palette, concept and presentation. Under close scrutiny, the most mundane objects and situations can compel us, drawing our full attention. The more we look, the more variations surface; differences arise from things that once seemed identical, and sameness arises from things that once seemed unrelated. This exploration of nearness guides how the artworks interact with one another through proximity, mirroring, repetition and reinterpretation. Strange bedfellows are made and unforeseen connections arise. The Closer Together Things Are takes stock of how little we need to see in order to feel like we’ve seen these things before, only this time more clearly."

Co-curated by Shannon Anderson and Jay Wilson, the exhibition's opening reception takes place on Thursday, September 14 at 7:00 p.m. All are welcome!
