We can learn from each other. Kindness is radical. Introspection is social and gathering together encourages deep thought and connection. From January 14 – February 11, Room Gallery will be a welcoming space for the UCI Community and public to reflect upon our current moment through four distinct curatorial projects. These projects range from an archive of garments, sound works addressing public legislation, the writings of an reviewer, and an invitation to contribute to an ongoing collective art project about relationships to home. Though each project functions as a distinct unit, they are united by their interest in what remains in our cultural memory and what is forgotten. Throughout the run of the exhibition each curator will host a weekly conversation thematically connected to the idea of presence in absence. Each curatorial project presented, and the accompanying  conversation circles, ask what can be gained from what is present and what can be learned from that which is missing.
