CAN Triennial 2022: You Are Here is a multi-venue exhibition organized in collaboration with an intergenerational, diverse team of curators from a range of institutional affiliations.
The University Circle portion of the CAN Triennial explores You Are Here as seen through the lens of identity, environment and journey. In other words, it is about who we are, how place impacts our sense of self, and how where we are is a function of how we got here.
You Are Here: The Way We Transcend will be on view from July 8 through August 31 in the Ann and Norman Roulet Student + Alumni Gallery. A reception will be held from 6 to 8pm Friday, July 29, and the exhibition will feature work by Cathie Bleck, Melissa English Campbell, Jill Yanik Eisert, Robin Haller and Seneca Kuchar. Eisert and Kuchar are 2008 and 2021 CIA alumni, respectively.
The University Circle portion of the CAN Triennial is curated by Currently Under Curation, a competitive arts mastery program facilitated by the Cleveland Museum of Art in partnership with the Cleveland Foundation. The CUC team consists of six high school students—Shree Ghosh, Abby Hope, Jamal Ledonté, Arica McKinney, Sarah Voss and Jacklyn Walker—and is led by Sabine Kretzschmar, Education Art Collection manager at CMA.
Curating the CAN Triennial, CUC used two primary lenses. One was visceral, selecting artists that communicated a larger story, sparked conversations, explored new modes of expression and were relatable. The other was based on what they observed and interpreted from the submissions, which shaped the CUC’s take on You Are Here.
Also on view in University Circle will be You Are Here: Understanding the Space We Fill at the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve and You Are Here: Look How Far We’ve Come at The Sculpture Center.
