We Are Staying Exhibition Opening

Alina Gallo’s mural installation, We Are Staying, in the SPACE annex is a graphic rendering of an urban environment in Syria. It is a composite of images and descriptions of Aleppo, Saraqib, Hama, Homs, Damascus and Daraa taken from conventional and social media sources over the last three years. Here, disparate geographies and unorganized moments in time overlay each other, reflecting both a fragmented understanding of these accounts, and the conscious and unconscious attempts to recompose a potential reality.  

Come see the work Alina installed over the course of two weeks in May, and talk with her about the project before she returns home to Rome.
