Through photography, video, design, and installation, artists working within the US and EU come together to address the threshold of language – spoken, written, visual, gestural, architectural, etc. – and the threat of a frame. By attempting to define the unknown, and unknowable, we can become blind to the value of the undefinable, less comprehensible, forgotten, misplaced, different, “fake.” Language simultaneously builds and shatters.

The exhibition occupies a space in flux – an apartment in renovation, changing from one notion of home to another – and we find ourselves in between two moments of the same word. Same. Different. Compressed. In this space we have the potential to see the frame, shatter it, and build something new, grounded in care for the unknown and empathy for the unknowable.

The group exhibition includes the work of twenty-one artists, including other Parsons Photography Alumni, connected in an effort to better understand the space between representation and misrepresentation, and ways we move between the two. Books and zines will be presented alongside the works of Eleonora Agostini, Widline Cadet, Joseph Desler Costa, Magali Duzant (MFA 2014), María Elínardóttir, Nicholas Fraser, Yoav Friedländer, Michelle Gevin, Michelle Gevint (MFA 2014), Yvette King, Brandon Kruysman, Thomas Kuijpers, Sara Z. Meghdari, Lana Mesić, Ashley Middleton (MFA 2015), Rehan Miskci, Nemo Nonnenmacher, Ayodamola Okunseinde, Masahito Ono(MFA 2015), Daan Paans, Brian Palmer, and Dana`Stirling.
