Free Outdoor Exhibit: Reposition Relocation
Date: August 1, 2020–October 10, 2020
Location: Custom House, 192 Main Street, Sag Harbor, New York
Reposition Relocation is one among several pieces on display in public-facing locations across the globe as part of the international exhibition, Art Off-Screen, curated by Eileen Jeng Lynch of Neumeraki. In response to pause orders issued during the pandemic, Art Off-Screen showcases original art for the community outdoors—providing access to art beyond a screen, inspiring creativity, amplifying voices, encouraging change, and sharing messages of hope and healing.
Reposition Relocation is a digital collage diptych inspired by histories and materials in and around the Custom House in Sag Harbor. Collaging elements from archival images, photos of youth-led protest movements, and technology-based visual culture, Reposition Relocation is inspired by the invisible processes and aesthetic decisions of makers and preservationists as well as connections between materials, craft, physical space, and human gesture. This work features photos created with East End Against Hate members: Brontë Zunis, Lateshia Peters, and Brooke Canavan.
