Opening Reception: May 16th, 6-9p.m.
The Exhibition: IT WILL NOT BE THE SAME WITHOUT YOU is the first American exhibition of French artist, AMANDE IN. This show centers on two performative works that involve the transition of materials and space in relation to viewer’s perception. In this exhibition the immaterial and material coalesce with the sensual and imagined. The real and unreal, the present and absent collide in exhibition form.
