Suspended Embrace: Techne Winner Cindy Lu

Arthaus Projects is featuring “Suspended Embrace” a new exhibition showcasing the work of Techne winner Cindy Lu. This project addresses the ~68 million refugees and migrants worldwide, and stems from seeing footage of aid workers wrapping emergency blankets around the shoulders of newly-arrived refugees. The tenderness of that momentary act of embrace and the temporary warmth provided by the thin material seemed to offer a brief reprieve from an uncertain future, given the growing backlash against those seeking safety beyond the borders of their homeland. This series of work explores the tension between the temporary and the permanent, the fragile and the resilient, and seeks to prolong or suspend the moment of embrace.  

  • When: All day
  • Where: 140 W. Fourth St., Williamsport
  • Cost: Free
