Touch Stone, the current exhibition at CTRL+SHFT by Kirsten Brehmer and Dionne Lee, is on view through June 5th! Through photography and video, Brehmer and Lee explore their own relationships to land and nature, and how such spaces can shape one’s understanding of their place in the wider world.
Accompanying the exhibition is an entry point, or reading and research room, featuring text selections and work by invited artists Alex Arzt, Angela Berry, and Nkiruka Oparah. The entry point offers a casual space during gallery hours for conversation and engagement with resources that deepening one’s relationship to the natural world. Gallery hours are Sat./Sun. 12p to 5p so do make sure to stop in if you haven't yet been to experience this beautiful exhibition.
Hope to see you soon!
