We’ve all received postcards from those travelling to far off places, extoling the virtues of the exotic with sentiments like, “The light is so beautiful this far North,” or the simple, more prosaic, “Having fun!” but most of the time the ending phrase, heartfelt as it sometimes is, is usually, “Wish you were here.” The phrase not only suggests a kind of momentary wistfulness, but - and perhaps more importantly -denotes a state of being aligned more with the experience of forging one’s life rather than simply existing.

"Wish You Were Here" features contributions by Amoako Boafo, Noah Davis, Lenz Geerk, Wangari Mathenge, Betye Saar, Henry Taylor and Brenna Youngblood, among others. The exhibition brings together a selection of artworks focusing on deconstructing moments of self-reflection by asking pertinent questions about what it means to be alive so as to better comprehend the responsibilities we have to ourselves and to each other.
