|Photograph of Non-Place by Sarah Tortora|
Based on the notion of “non-place,” a phrase coined by anthropologist Marc Augé, the 2013 Summer Juried Exhibition features 28 artists, each exploring how non-place—those locations of seeming anonymity devoid of time, such as freeways and airports—can unearth instances of humanity, storytelling, and belonging often associated with the particularities of “place.”
Non-place can be anything and anywhere: the haunting stillness of a hospital room, the front seat of a van, or even our own bodies in transit. Join us as we investigate Augé’s phrase, considering the various interpretations the concept of “non-place” may hold, and all of the meanings that can be discovered through those interpretations.
