Join Bemis Center’s curator-in-residence Sylvie Fortin for a lively and informative tour of Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens' "Look, it's daybreak, dear, time to sing" – an exhibition of new sculptures and videos that highlight the ties that bind humans with birds, adopting a more-than-human viewpoint to reveal sites of mutual hope and friction. Stretching into the distant past while drawing us into possible futures, this exhibition invites us to expand our capacity to imagine and build shared worlds for generations of avians, humans, and a host of other members of our planetary family. This is a unique opportunity to discuss the contexts and overarching theme of the exhibition and gain insight into the curatorial process.
