AWKWARD FEELINGS // CURATED BY TALIA SMITH & NATASHA MATILA-SMITH
27 May, 2014 to 31 May, 2014
It's a little more than a nod to shyness. You walk into a room and you aren't sure where to locate yourself. You see no familiar faces. A growing sensation of dread in the pit of your stomach.
A shared experience of being unsure. Strangers becoming acquaintances. Acquaintances become friends. Can we skip the small talk and get to the point? I like you and I want to know you.
The exhibition Awkward Feelings attempts to bridge the gap between strange and familiar territory. Through Artworks that either interrupt the space or call for visitor participation, the exhibition challenges the viewer to face those feelings head on.
