The Familiar Edge of the Unknown

June 14, 2021 - July 12, 2021

A glass door, on which are written the words "The Familiar Edge of the Unknown, Elizabeth Arzani, Tanner Lind," opens into a gallery space with tall ceilings and light wood floors. Beyond the door, various pieces hang on a white wall; and in the middle of the room, shelves hang against soft pastel shapes.

The Center for Contemporary Art & Culture is pleased to present the upcoming exhibition ‘The Familiar Edge of the Unknown,’ featuring individual and collaborative works by artists Elizabeth Arzani and Tanner Lind and curated Pacific Northwest College of Arts (PNCA) Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies (HFSGS) Curatorial Fellow, Ilsa Payne.

‘The Familiar Edge of the Unknown’ presents the works of Arzani and Lind, these two interdisciplinary artists’ work speak to spatial considerations of awareness by peeling back the layers of experience through the exploration of relationships and systems. Both artists center concepts of transformative states of responsiveness in their individual and collaborative works. Arzani troubles fragmentation while Lind attends to ideas of tracendension.
