How do you sum up a place?
re:collections attempts to unpack the infinite readings, interpretations, and translations that occur when thinking of place, memory, and time. It brings together a diverse group of creatives who investigate context through the natural and built environment and its social and cultural layers. What results is a collection of collections, varied in its inquiries, depictions, mediums, and processes. The exhibition features works by Amena Al-Yousef, Christto + Andrew, Fatma and Reem Al Sehlawi with Atlas Bookstore, Markus Elblaus, Nayla Al Mulla, and Simone Muscolino with the Moving Postcards Project.
re:collections invites visitors to experience a grounded, complex, nuanced, and extraordinary place. It opens up urgent and necessary conversations without offering conclusions, allowing different translations to emerge.
