"Now that my ladder's gone, I must lie down where all the ladders start, In the foul rag-and-bone shop of the heart."-W. B. Yeats

Love & Longing shares descents into the unknown, artistic responses that perpetuate their own kind of fulfillment-"when the dark becomes another kind of lover" (John Tarrant). Through trying circumstances and a multiplicity of entanglements, the works in Love & Longing share a sensibility fraught with loss, and reactions layered over time.

The exhibition includes works that chip-or pound-away at the wall separating art and life-that challenge, complicate, intensify, confront, and grapple with engagement and connection. Drawing upon a wide range of media and conceptual strategies-from the unflinchingly serious to the deadpan, from one-on-one to participatory encounters-the artworks selected visually and aurally engage with unlikely, ungraspable hope, and a call for radical empathy and deepening relationships, in our own dark time.
