About the Exhibition
Collapsing Histories: time, space, and memory is a unique cross-cultural and interdisciplinary exhibition of the catastrophic experience, curated by Aaron Kerner. The exhibition is composed of nine artists, who approach the catastrophic experience in their work. The artists, however, have not directly experienced the catastrophic; they are drawing on earlier generations' experiences (often their own parents). Such endeavors inevitably address questions regarding the continuity of history, space, and memory especially in the face of the unrelenting passage of time.
