This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

The overarching themes of Carrying the Thick Present take shape by reflecting upon three interrelated notions: intimacy (companionship, affect and love); fabulation (fabricating the real through speculative storytelling); and trauma (traumatic histories and presents, from war, violence and social conflicts). It is by working through these notions that these artists have found their ways for engaging with, telling and carrying the thick present we live in.

Participating artists: Matthew John Apol, Joshua David Baker, Katlyn Brumfield, Allison DeBritz, Jiayu Kang, Gregory G. Mizak, Linda Moses, Brett Morgan, Aanchal Raisahib, Ayesha Rumi, Ryan Somelofske, Catherine Spencer, Kristina Starowitz, Maya Stern, Britton Matthew Thorp, Katherine Virag, Faezeh Tabatabaeimanesh, Shane Zhang II. Curated by Manuela Hansen.

Opening reception: July 24, 3-8 p.m.
Closing reception: August 7, 3-8 p.m.

Governors Island is accessible by ferry available from the Battery Maritime Building in Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn. Visit the Governors Island website for more visitor information.
