The DNA of Water exhibition considers how water has traditionally and simultaneously functioned as border, passageway, and gateway. Using Thomas More’s 1516 book, Utopia, as a jumping off point, curator Sasha Dees invites audiences to ask the questions: How do we as a people relate to our history, our present and future? Are we willing to question history and adapt in the present? Are we willing and able to continuously make the needed changes and reform ourselves to be equipped for the future?

Curated by Sasha Dees, featuring the work of Deborah Jack, Petri Saarikko, Sasha Huber and Simone Bennett.

This project is in part made possible by: Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation, Arts Promotion Centre Finland & VISEK (for Sasha Huber & Petri Saarikko), Mondriaan Foundation (for the work by Simone Bennett).
