Dwelt: Exploring Structural Significance Co-curated by Monika Zarzeczna and Stella Yoon

Buildings serve as both physical and metaphorical spaces that embody aspects of our lives. By constructing narratives of personal histories, these places not only provide a backdrop but also become characters in the stories we shape and remember. Dwelt showcases works by Pauline DeCarmo, Amanda C. Mathis, Elizabeth Messer, and Monika Zarzeczna, using structures as vessels for memories and explorations of lived experiences.

Gallery - 2nd Floor
