Artist Reception: Saturday, May 12, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

What does the world look like and how do people see themselves within it? How are memory and identity manifested in those perspectives? How does the constancy of change and the current state of flux influence this connection? This national juried exhibition brings together photographic works from artists who are concerned with humanity's complex relationship to place.

Artists include: Ezra Asohan, Miranda Brandon, Chelsea Cossu, Anastasia Davis, Michael Dillow, Richard Greene, Leo Hsu, Selena Hurst, Mandy L. Kendall, Ross Mantle, Susan Morelock, Marc Newton, Jenna Petrone, Jacob Platt, Sean Stewart, John L. Stritzinger. and FeiFan Zhang.

The site/sight exhibition is juried by Ashley McNelis, Curatorial Assistant for the Carnegie International, 57th Edition, 2018 at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh. McNelis is a New York-based writer, curator, and art historian specializing in photography. She is a contributor to BOMB Magazine, The Brooklyn Rail, The Heavy Collective, and Hyperallergic. www.cargocollective.com/AshleyMcNelis
