Curated by Morgan Quaintance

Smile Orange was a group exhibition of painting, photography and video works that explored dynamics of identity formation (and their reliance on history and memory) from a personal, communal and national perspective. Rather than presenting objects as fixed statements, Smile Orange operated as a support structure allowing the following questions to be posed: Who am I? Who are we? What is a nation?
