Transitory Emplacements

Exhibition | First floor

Addressing themes of homelessness, migration, and belonging, this group exhibition will convey the complexities of emplacement—the process of situating something or someone into a new place—through an exploration of displacement and its relationship to power and identity. 

Transitory Emplacements features works from Diedrick Brackens, Nathaniel Donnett, and Nicole Miller.
