Curated by Peter Printz of Birmingham’s Space One Eleven, this exhibition of work by artists Tia-Simone Gardner, Stacey Holloway, and Celestia Morgan, explores differing forms of distances which have been enforced throughout history. From stay-at-home orders and six-feet-rules of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, to housing discrimination and systemic racism, Distances gives a visual representation of the challenging social and economical distances we have, and are still enduring.
