Too Close to Home is a two-day special event of screenings and newly commissioned performances. Bringing together work by artists practicing in a wide range of contexts, the event investigates the notion of the stranger and examines the consequences of our individual and collective relationship to strangeness and how it exists alongside, conflicts with, or even threatens our own sense of home.
Participating artists: Mary Walling Blackburn, Paul Chan, Elizabeth Moran, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Shelly Silver, and Wafaa Yasin
curated by Leila Grothe
