Join artist and curator Chris McNamara for a guided tour of the exhibition “It Don’t Exist” – Imagining the City Within and Beyond the Archive. In this exhibition, Christopher McNamara selects works from the AWE collection to ruminate on the ways we consider the city in our dreams and in our daily lives. Evidence of past lives linger within the frames and outer edges of the works selected. McNamara’s own city dioramas and multi media works add to these reflections on urban life and the stories we use to both remember and understand our places on the map.

He has exhibited and performed his work extensively in Canada, the United States, and Europe.
