The Durham Art Guild presents From the Betweens, Stories on Bringing Back and Beyond featuring new works by DAG’s 2020 Artist in Residence, Claire Alexandre. From the Betweens is a gathering of stories that center the everyday experiences and ancestral teachings of the complex reciprocity between land, memory and community prosperity. Claire Alexandre’s pieces weave intimate narratives from members of the African diaspora and their experience of ‘home’ that are drawn from academic research, local environmental justice case studies, botanical knowledge, poems, prayers and magic.
This exhibit is on view at the DAG Gallery at Golden Belt Campus January 7 – February 4, 2021. For the health safety of our community while in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this exhibition is only viewable by appointment with advanced notice.
