TEEN CURATORS: A THIN LINE
Stove Works / 1250 E 13th St. December 4, 2021 - January 5, 2022
Human love has no easy answer, no definitive end. So how does one define what love is within boundaries marked so clearly by hate? In a society that pits people against each other, how can one really know for certain what love is? It is so easy to think of love simply in a romantic manner. However, in A THIN LINE, many different types of love/hate are displayed in order to give a look into all different interpretations. Our exhibition prompts the viewer to explore how they define love in its absence.
