One Week from Spring  |  on exhibit July 2021

One Week from Spring explores memory, records, observation, and narratives around what author Kathleen Stewart calls “ordinary affects” through the production of a new suite of intaglio prints and drawings. The imagery will circulate around softness and domestic intimacy to produce a space addressing collective desire and connection.
