Not Traumatic Enough for a Shock Blanket - Yasmeen Nematt Alla
Where do we go to talk about our everyday traumatic experiences that we do not believe are worthy of sharing? In “Not Traumatic Enough for a Shock Blanket,” Yasmeen Nematt Alla explores this question. This thought-provoking exhibit invites us to consider the importance of trauma-informed community spaces and the ability of art to provide gestures of care.
This exhibit was planned prior to the emergence of COVID-19. However, when our Gallery opens again, we believe this exhibit has a role to play in supporting community healing and story-telling in the wake of the pandemic. We are currently collaborating with the artist to develop programming to meet community needs that will go alongside this exhibit. Stay tuned!
