July 12 – October 12, 2019 Opening: Friday, July 12th at 7:00 pm
When water accumulates it is called a body, a body of water. A human body is also a body of water. Body of waters and bodies of water, a conversation: encounters on ocean shores and river edges, accumulations and movements, gravitational pulls, generational pulls, history, geography, the stains of industry.
This exhibition brings together six artists—Barry Ace, Erika DeFreitas, Lindsay Dobbin, Merritt Johnson, Anne Riley, and Bear Witness—whose work brings the human body into contact with water where they consider the many ways water shapes and is shaped by human life.
