Lost, not to be found

February 8 to 28, 2021

© Yasmine Benabdallah, Our success is in sharing space, 2021.

“A desire to keep, to record, not to forget.
Finding beauty in knowledge, in memory, in transmission: a sense of belonging, of pertaining to a longer legacy.
The feeling I get when looking at the ocean waves, knowing that tides are eternal.”
— Yasmine Benabdallah

Beginning February 8, Yasmine Benabdallah invites us to take part in a multimedia journey in response and in conversation with our research project If A Tree Falls In A Forest

This offering is as follows:
