The Closer Together Things Are explores the space between difference and similarity that arises from intense observation and consideration. 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 and featuring the work of artists Kathleen Hearn, Laura Letinsky, Ève K. Tremblay, Micah Lexier, Dave Dyment, Luke Painter, Rhonda Weppler/Trevor Mahovsky, Chris Kline, and Roula Partheniou.
The exhibition continues at UWAG from September 14 to October 28, 2017.
