Migration Stories Whispered in My Ear / Me Susurran Al Oído Historias de Migrante
Moysés Zuñiga Santiago

August 11 - September 10, 2022

Curator: Anahí Gonzalez
Researcher: Dr. Sarah Bassnett

At Dusk
Michelle Paterok

August 11 - September 10, 2022

In her painting practice, Michelle Paterok considers how spaces are experienced subjectively, how these experiences are reconstructed in our memories, and how the affordances of painting contribute to representing subjectivity. Finally, she asks what role painting might play in addressing the environmental urgencies of the present moment.

At Dusk is a series of paintings investigating the poetics of colour and light in the context of domestic space. Paterok aims to express a specific emotional atmosphere of a space, seeking to depict time unfolding in the static frame of a painting. Read more
