Art, Galleries

When Essma Imady returned to Damascus for the first time since leaving in 2011, she was surprised to feel disconnected from her former home city. This was the inspiration for her latest project, “Muscle Memory, Syrian Homecomings.” Through installation, sculpture, video, and other media, she explores memory and how the violence of war colors recollections, associations, and narratives as we try to move on. "Seeming," featuring work by Torey Erin, will also be exhibited in the gallery space.
