Thinking outside of the self, feeling the fire of others, and engendering thought-forms to knit with our own; this is what Empathy Affect hopes to share.

This congress of artworks has been assembled in companionship to Converge45 Artistic Director Kristy Edmunds’ mantra YOU IN MIND. We find in this phrase a dissolution of the ego’s boundary between self and other. Empathy is an action, joyous and pained: persistent in claiming a culture of passion and admiration.

Artists: Conduit, Tannaz Farsi, Ann Hamilton, David Horvitz, Kristan Kennedy, Heather Watkins, Weird Allan Kaprow, Ariana Jacob, Ellen Lesperance, Anna Gray, Ryan Wilson Paulsen + Nutmeg Elements Bridger.
