Saturday, October 29, 2016 - 12:00pm

EXHIBITION ON VIEW: October 29 – November 19, 2016

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, October 29 from 2:00pm - 5:00pm

"The curatorial framework of Logs consists of exhibiting a selection of video and digital works that tackle the differences between an expatriate and [im]migrant, the contradictions between seemingly “beneficial” treaties and their material outcomes, and question terms such as “efficiency”, “nation”, and “speed”. The four artists exhibited; Rouzbeh Akhbari, Benny Hunter, Mariam Magsi and Ash Moniz are committed to these themes. Their artistic practices demonstrate a politically rigorous ambivalence towards finding solutions to these complex local, national, and global issues. This diverse group of makers utilizes first person experience working and living outside and inside their original homes as an integral framework for their work. While some focus on their perception of time as foreigners, others shine light on the struggles of navigating spaces that are programmed to suppress them. By bringing their work together, Logs hopes to present the audience with a multifaceted perspective on the historical and contemporary realities of movement." - Tak Pham, Curator - Architectural Historian - Creative Strategist
