About the Event

We're thrilled to finally be opening Not Far From Here, our long-awaited two-person show with photographs by Cape Town-based Kent Andreasen and paintings by Brooklyn-based Nate Burbeck. We've overcome shipping disasters and pandemic-related shut-downs and we're excited to welcome you to see the work, in person, in our Williamsburg space!

"Each time I look at Kent's photos and Nate's paintings, I see something new. I gain a glimmer of understanding, and new questions are raised. I am an interloper, as they are, and yet the scenes are familiar. They are warm, yet tarnished. They are foreboding, but enticing. They are mystical, yet down-to-earth. This is "America's Heartland," representing centuries of pain and love, growth and destruction. We are none of us far from here." - Sophie Olympia Riese

This exhibition, slated to open last September and then again in March, is more relevant than ever. Not Far From Here highlights the differences in perception, lived experience, and memory in the contemporary Midwest. These same differences are contributing to the movement across the United States and the world to grapple with, reconcile, and radically shift the understanding of how race, wealth, religion, and gender intersect to offer protections and privileges, or to strip people of safety and dignity.
