The Land Between The Sea

@ ENGAGE Projects

864 N Ashland Ave, Chicago, IL 60622

Opening Saturday, July 23rd, from 6PM - 8PM

On view through Friday, August 26th

ENGAGE Projects is pleased to present The Land Between The Sea, a group exhibition organized by guest curator Noah Hanna, featuring the work of Juan Molina Hernández, M_m<M, Saranoa Mark, and Farah Salem. Taking inspiration from Chicana theorist Gloria Anzaldúa’s experience of nepantla, a Nahuatl word for a space between two bodies of water or worlds, as well as a manifestation of personal, social, spiritual, and cultural ‘in between-ness.’ This exhibition explores the desert as a space in which history, geography, and identity exist in a state of perpetual transition.

Though the desert often evokes a particular geopolitical and environmental border zone, these artists instead consider how our personal labors within the landscape produce our roots, narratives, and identities, encouraging us to perceive the desert as a space that is both the product of human existence and in opposition to it.
