In Situ represents the dichotomy of Melissa Alcena’s approach as a both documentarian and fine art photographer who centers Bahamians in their totality. The exhibition comprises over twenty (20) photographs spanning Alcena’s practice over the past five years.
In Situ is a testament to Alcena’s dedication to kinship and an ode to the landscape. Alcena conjures beauty within the ordinary for those of us who frequently traverse our islands and forces the expansion of the visual vocabulary and gaze of those who visit. This exhibition pulls together five years of conversations, on-going relationships, and ever changing landscapes and puts them on display for our investigation.
With an opening reception on Thursday November 10th, from 7pm to 9pm, In Situ is on view through December 10th, 2022.
