Please join us for the opening reception of Un-drawn, a group exhibition presenting the work of J Carrier, Richard Mosse, Xaviera Simmons and David Taylor. Un-drawn offers 4 distinct perspectives on displacement and immigration from multiple locations across the globe. Collectively, they address how invisible or contested borders are revealed through images of the landscape, it’s inhabitants and the spaces or monuments in between the two. The images in this exhibition depict exile and migration, conflict and defeat, permeated by the desire to reveal a new understanding of place.
Photographs of vividly beautiful land marred by conflict are juxtaposed with an understated narrative about migration and yearning set throughout Israel and the West Bank. Images of US/Mexico border monuments are juxtaposed with a wall-sized grid of over thirty found photographs, appropriated from news sources depicting migrants afloat in the open sea. Un-drawn presents a series of works that are connected through their depiction of displacement and tensions felt, but unseen.
