Strangers & Those We Hold Dear is an exhibition which balances on the tenuous line that in hope, there is the responsibility to face the world attentive to our actions and interactions with each other. Featuring works by Malin Arnell, Miyeon Lee, Charlotte Posenenske and Katie West, curated by Eloise Sweetman.

Exhibitions and artworks can be spaces of hope. This exhibition takes the position that our everyday actions—be it environmentally, socially, culturally, politically—make a difference, even if we cannot see or know the impact.

Hope takes action.

Hope is improvisation.
