In Touch

Guest Curation for Ohio Arts Council | In Touch

Jan. 27 – April 5, 2024     OAC’s Riffe Gallery
April 20 – July 7, 2024     Medici Museum of Art

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 beyond normative confines. Rather than reducing our physicality and fleshy exchanges to a singularly knowable experience, we honor the nuance and uniqueness of our radical bodies.

The group exhibition features an assemblage of paintings, textiles, ritual objects, and video 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 of past embraces while respecting our heightened sensitivity to proximity and togetherness. They help us find our place.
