UNION GALLERY'S BOOKSHELF SELECTION: THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US

Curated by Posy Legge || From June 1st-August 11th, 2016

One of the oldest arguments for the importance of art in communities is its ability to foster empathy in viewers. The ability of art to help us feel and understand the experiences of others continues to motivate artists to create objects, spaces, and happenings that allow us to connect with one another's positions and perspectives. In increasingly diverse and growing urban communities, promoting empathy becomes even more significant, as we at times become distracted by apparent differences, further distancing ourselves from people we do not know or with whom we do not identify.

Posy Legge is an artist and student, pursuing her Master’s in Art History at Queen’s University. Her research interests include 18th century material culture, Contemporary Indigenous art, and Museum studies.
