Slow down! Deeply observe works of art in Chris Curreri: A Surrogate, A Proxy, A Stand-In. Guided by a community facilitator, this contemplation practice allows for relaxation and new insights. Part of Agnes’s Wellness Program.

Chris Curreri is a Canadian artist working across film, photography and sculpture. His work lingers in liminal states, capturing processes and focusing in on the moments before identity is fixed or concepts come into light as fully intelligible, and thus taken as normative. His production is premised on the idea that things in the world are not defined by essential properties but constituted through messy exchanges with other things—all folded together in a fabric of relations that erode simple dichotomies of tenderness/violence, beauty/abjection, self/other. Curreri asks: To what extent do we open ourselves up to, or close ourselves off from, such possible penetrations? This exhibition is an allegory of these issues as if they have emerged between the closure of the aperture and the exposure of the photographic image.

This program is made possible through the generous support of the George H. Stedman Foundation and Iva Speers Fund for Art Education.
