if you have two legs, borrow another pair and run Curated by Santina Amato and Sarah Skaggs

About the show

If you have two legs, borrow another pair and run, a loose translation of a Persian proverb, frames this group exhibition reconsidering singledom. Positing that being single is not a condition of lack or in need of remedy. Asking instead, what if singledom is such a scarily powerful state that we find ourselves undermining it? Challenging the cultural perspective that one’s life is complete only after finding a partner, the works in this exhibition forefront, instead, the empowerment found in true autonomy. Offering ways to address the paired world with surreal prosthetic or embracing the repudiation of a contemporary life ‘uncoupled’ and exploring notions of the missing partner or the insufficient, abandoned romance. Co-curated by Santina Amato and Sarah Skaggs, with artwork by Mohadeseh Rahimitabar, Katya Grokhovsky, Lauren Steinberg, Lindsay Hutchens, Katie Hammond, Santina Amato and Monica Rezman. A limited edition catalog with contributions by the artists and cover design by Angela Azmitia will be available at the reception.
