A community opening event will be held on Saturday, March 3 from 5 to 7 p.m. Both the exhibition and opening event are free to the public.

 

Wish You Were Here, an exhibition by Lexie "Mountain" Macchi, interdisciplinary artist and CADVC graduate research assistant, recontextualizes the relationship of one leftover object to another, transforming and distorting the feeling of occupation, potential and space. Organized by the CADVC and ha! with additional support from the Highlandtown Community Association, this ground-floor installation calls towards a future of the space using the tools and language of its past—namely the detritus, debris, and accumulated silent memory-bearers within.
