The Breadth of Distance brings together photography, video, installation, and sculpture, these artworks shift across geographies, cultural perspectives, and time. They consider grief, longing, care, and resilience from many angles. How do our relationships to place shape who we are and how we move in the present?
This exhibition asks us all to consider how we came to be here on this land. Whether we are Indigenous, multi-generational settlers, or recent immigrants, this current moment demands we think through how we might build mutual understanding and empathy while recognizing our many differences.
we carry continents,
traverse vast distances while still.
the scent of comfort,
is also longing.
what goes unsaid,
a kind of knowing.
how do elsewheres live in the body?
in what cannot be named.
