Dionne Lee: touch and go

October 6, 2020 - January 31, 2021

Free
Collage of black and white photos, displayed inside a street-level room with floor-to-ceiling windows, next to a parking garage. In the background on the left, a large white hand is set against a black background, which covered in random lines. A negative photo of a hand is superimposed on top. On the right, portions of black-and-white photos are cut into the shapes of hands and arranged abstractly.

touch and go is an installation curated by Leila Weefur of large scale mixed media collages and video works that source, reenact, and re-photograph images from wilderness survival books, exploring the relationship between rescue, danger, and the necessity of touch. Lee’s images are a metaphorical guide, assembling a narrative of survival skills that manifest amid environmental chaos and the historical systems of oppression that determine who survives.

Dionne Lee uses photography, collage, and video to investigate ideas of power and race in relation to the American landscape.
