Ecotone | Boundaries, Tensions, Integrations
August 2–September 20
Opening Reception: Saturday, August 2, 5:00–8:00pm

On August 2, Venice Arts Gallery will host the Opening Reception for its latest exhibition, “Ecotone: Boundaries, Tensions, Integrations.” The exhibition features seventeen artists, each exploring and documenting in-between or transitional spaces through photography or video. These works, investigating interactions caused by human migration or displacement, urban encroachments onto nature, or environmental strain, question how we relate to borders and places of transience, and what exists in these ambiguous spaces.
