Site Unseen

Thursday, April 20 – Sunday, May 21, 2017
Opening Reception: Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 7 – 9pm

For their subjects, the artists in Site Unseen choose aspects of urban life that that we see every day – things to which we usually pay no special notice, like restaurants, old buildings, the river that’s always been there. These are sites that our eyes take in but we may not truly see. But when an artist chooses to cast his or her eye on that subject, it is transformed and becomes both filtered and layered with meaning. In recording and interpreting these sites, the artists prompt questions about our relationship with the built and natural environments, history and urban development, and what’s “real” and what’s constructed.
