In Touch

Guest Curation for Ohio Arts Council’s Riffe Gallery | In Touch

January 27 – April 5, 2024

IN TOUCH addresses our sensorial return to public spaces after years of distance and absence. The exhibition builds on research by cultural theorist Luce Irigaray, and her feminist exploration of interpersonal connections in the book “To Be Two” (2001). Rather than reducing our physicality and fleshy exchanges to a singularly knowable experience, Irigaray honors the nuance and uniqueness in every body. With that in mind, this group exhibition considers the ways we are reentering our communities and meeting one another, again.

The collection features a collage of mediums – sculpture, portraiture, textiles, video art, and ritual objects – as way finding guideposts. Each offers a pathway back to sensation, sense of self, and interaction. These pieces share an aesthetic of care and allow space for uncertainty. They reference our memories or missed embraces even while acknowledging an understandably heightened sensitivity to proximity and togetherness. They help us find our place.
