Layers of Memory
This exhibition displays work that explores the complex theme of memory. The retrieval of the past can involve many layers, including the persistence of recurring memory, the forgotten past, and the nature of recollection. Critic Kate Green suggests that, "memories may be stored in our minds, but they are unleashed by textures, words, and forms." How we store and retrieve memory, whether by using a computer or touching a piece of cloth from our past to spur recollection, memory remains a constant priority in our daily lives for the preservation of our individual and collective histories. This collection presents a universal theme, interpreted in very different ways.
