Curatorial Assistant: Alexander Rondeau
Workshop: November 6, 2–3:30pm
Opening Reception: November 9, 7:30–9:30pm
Heather Leier’s solo exhibition Coping and Care brings together several print-based works that collectively employ coping and intervention strategies to mitigate gendered and environmental violence. Notably, the coping mechanism of “looking down” is prominent within Leier’s artistic production: otherwise unnoticed discarded materials such as a broken flowerpot are incorporated into her artworks, which are themselves displayed on the gallery floor as an embodied positionality of coping.
