We spend our lives surrounded by strangers. They’re sitting at bars, shopping in malls, and working in offices all around us. And while strangers are everywhere, we’re rarely given the chance to explore their circumstances. Conversely, the artists in Getting Acquainted have chosen to spend time with strangers. Anonymously working after the fact, they turn brief encounters into deep, careful records. Through collaborative video work, drawing, photography, and simply listening, these works celebrate the process and products of getting to know a stranger.
