New art exhibition

 

The Distillery Gallery, 516 East Second St., is hosting “The City Inside Us,” artwork by Jose Ferreira and Asma Kazmi, now through March 17.

 

“The City Inside Us” is an exhibition of heterogeneous objects and gestures that encompass themes of consciousness, ritual, habit and habitation. Oscillating between the material and the virtual, the exhibition unsettles viewers to reveal ways in which history is inscribed onto bodies, and onto the environment.

 

The exhibition unfolds along by connecting two projects: Ferreira’s work seeks to locate trajectories of familial histories and memories that are fraught with omissions and narratives of denial. Kazmi’s project aims to map the architectural, material and cultural history of radically changing sites and topographies of major cities.

 

The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays through Saturdays and by appointment.
