Durden and Ray invite you to experience two exhibitions in one space. One half of the

gallery will be dedicated to Crossing Borders, a collaboration with Ruimte Caesuur in

The Netherlands. The other half of the gallery will feature Woven Together, a

collaboration with Gallery 70 in Tirana, Albania.

As part of the Durden and Ray exchange program, Crossing Borders was conceived as a

collaborative project between six artists; three from the collective Ruimte Caesuur in

the Netherlands and three from Durden and Ray in Los Angeles. Each artist from the

Netherlands chose a Durden and Ray artist to collaborate with directly,

communicating back and forth over time. Each team of two artists came up with a

unique concept for their collaboration, and used diverse mediums including; sculpture,

painting, photography and installation. Artist pairings are Hans Overvliet and Ben

Jackel, Jorieke Rottier and Arezoo Bharthania as well as Giel Louws and Valerie

Wilcox. The central concept being a melding of ideas and objectives over time and

place, intermingling their respective experiences. This causes a blurring of boundaries

which leads us to question: Is it possible to bring an authentic experience of one place

with you to another place, effectively crossing borders?

Woven Together presents a tapestry of artistic voices, cultures, and histories,

intersecting at the crossroads of creativity and identity born out of a collaboration

between Gallery 70 in Tirana, Albania and Durden and Ray. "Borders" serves as both a

theme and a metaphor within this exhibition. It signifies the boundaries that can be traversed, blurred, or dismantled through the act of creation.
