In the new year Critical Distance will be welcoming visitors during our new gallery hours. We are open Wednesday to Friday 12-6 pm, Saturday and Sunday 11-5 pm, and by appointment during exhibitions. Unless otherwise noted, we are open on holiday weekends during exhibitions and closed for installation between shows. We encourage you to confirm exhibition dates before making the trip, and hope to see you soon!
We are delighted to introduce the first in our new series of annual editions. Selected by a different invited guest curator each year, this venture arrives from our interest in providing publishing opportunities to artists while producing affordable artworks for our audiences. For the inaugural edition, curator Liz Ikirio has selected the stunning image The Girl in the Red Dress by artist Ebti Nabag. Signed and numbered by the artist, these archival prints are available in our e-shop.
Also new to our e-shop is the publication How to spell the fight, a compelling investigation by Berlin-based artist Natascha Sadr Haghighian into mathematics and woven thread as ground for rethinking education, cognition, and power. As well, for those who have missed purchasing select publications in the past, our e-shop features restocked titles Hard To Place by Qiana Mestrich, a true story about race, family and the child welfare system in post-war Britain, and an expanded second edition of Undocumented: The Architecture of Migrant Detention by architect and activist Tings Chak.
