Return To The Land by Jessy Desantis | Opening Reception
Thursday, August 24 :: 6pm
@ Motor House

Guest curator and Baltimore based artist Jessy DeSantis invites viewers to reflect on artists’ interpretive expression of their relationship with the Land. Return to the Land features multidisciplinary art, including spoken word, video, illuminated aerial sculptures, paintings, photography and textile works by Baltimore based artists.

“Generations of separating ourselves from nature has led to our current lived experiences of this ecological emergency. For reversal, our way of human living would have to change drastically, it would need to be revolutionary. However unattainable that may feel, a manageable step towards that is of that internal revolution in returning to who we fundamentally are. Returning to the land is essentially returning to yourself because you are the land” – Jessy Desantis

Tuesday — Thursday @ 4:00 – 11:00 PM | Friday — Saturday @ 4:00 PM – Midnight
