DESCRIPTION

This exhibition considers the artwork around us through the lens of Edwidge Danticat's story “Sunrise, Sunset." I read the story just after Hurricane Irma had passed us by, after we’d returned to shabby, but mostly in tact houses and businesses, after having left thinking that there might not be much left when we returned. We had worried about our friends. I read the story when I was ready to see it as a parable for art itself. Art, the story made me understand, is how we communicate across barriers, not just to make noise or to be heard but so that we can be understood. The story is about a family in Little Haiti and a parable about the entropic nature of knowledge and the urgency to connect before it is too late.
