"Is the artist a stranger who trespasses among us? With an eye to Jean Luc Nancy’s concept of “the stranger,” Mary Walling Blackburn will consider notions of place, ownership and borderlands through the lens of her own artistic practice," says the press release. Mary Walling Blackburn is an artist and the founder of the experimental all-women graduate school The Anhoek School. Her most recent projects include Carrying Love is Not Like Carrying Money, a project made for e-flux’s Time/Bank at Frieze Art Fair/London and SMS Iran, a collaboration with Naeem Mohaiemen to be featured at Art Dubai Project Space online.
