EBAN: Sense of Place welcomes a diverse roster of talented Camden-based artists of varying ages, experiences, and cultures. As curators, artist collective, Watu Moja, encourages artists to explore and push the boundaries of the concepts of place, space, and belonging. The work displayed in Eban extends “place” into the physical, spiritual, mythical, and abstract. To examine and reimagine the places where we dwell, the exhibition is an examination of the needs, wants, and desires of Camden artists as individuals and more importantly as a collective community.
