In this exhibition’s conceit, desire for the beloved gives way to personal anecdotes, cultural observations, and critique. As a curatorial constraint, works dealing with the topic: love— whether romantic, filial, spiritual, or even love of homeland—are chosen for their indirectness. Curators: Katie Grace McGowan, Jaime Marie Davis. Artists: Terry Atkinson, Massimo Acanfora, Anetta Mona Chisa & Lucia Tkacova, Stefan Constantinescu, Aurora De Armendi, Douglas Degges, Chido Johnson, Julia Klein, Theo Knox, Runo Lagomarsino, Kirsten Leenars, Claudia Losi, Amitis Motevalli, Ahmet Ogut, Clifford Owens, Sarah Pager, Maja Radesic, Ariel Reichman, Dario Robleto, Joe Scanlan, Luke Turner, Sarah Wagner, Jemima Wyman, and Matvei Yankelevich.
