Join us for Flooding, Incubation Series IX, opening on Friday, January 26th exploring the malleable, porous, and transformative nature of memory and "rememory." As Toni Morrison describes in her poignant essay "The Site of Memory,” rememory, like the water of the Mississippi remembering its river beds, is the work of things “forever tr[ying] to get back to where [they were],” and it is often born in “a rush of imagination”—a “flooding.” The four artists, Danièle Dennis, James Allister Sprang, Monika Uchiyama, and Eric Yue, consider such “flooding,” or rememory, in relation to the personal, collective, familial, and cultural.
Flooding is co-curated by Laurel McLaughlin and Tamir Williams. It is the ninth exhibition in the Incubation Series and runs from January 26th to February 24th, 2018 at AUTOMAT.
The gallery hours for AUTOMAT are Saturday - Sunday 2-6pm and by appointment.
