The visiting artist series Re-Place Kohonios an exhibition by Merritt Johnson which surveys a landscape of place and displacement, and the importance of space and location in the process of identity formation. It is a narrative of land, diaspora and nativism-an epic of place and culture coming apart under the pressure of appropriation and dislocation from ancestral soil. The exhibition offers a rich platform to explore the art being made about dislocation as a critique of modern society.
Artist reception, May 18, 6-9pm. Artist lecture, June 9, 1pm. Gallery hours, Sundays 1-4pm except May 26 & June 26.
