WE NEED TO TALK

Crosstown Arts / 422 N. Cleveland St. February 10 - 25th

Sometimes, love ends. Romantic relationships, familial relationships, relationships with places, our former selves, or even really, really great pieces of pizza — they all have to end. These relationships tend to be hard to let go of. Be they genial, terrible, or downright awful, most people have an object, memento, or souvenir of each broken relationship that, because of it’s meaning, they just can’t throw away. These mundane objects are transformed into totems of memory, becoming the holy tangibles of a relationship ceased. This exhibition focuses on those objects and their stories and aims to offer one final bit of catharsis. Or at least a final chance to say … “Boy, Bye!!!”
