Attention is a task we share

Robin Love

Dec 2 - Dec 12, 2020

In her art practice, Peterborough native Robin Love explores how learning environments are structured to reinforce dominant ways of thinking and knowing. In Attention is a task we share, she confronts Euro-centric ways of knowing by prioritizing process over outcomes and fosters a space of improvisation and accident. The works - Short Talk on Process and Things Take the Time They Take - introduce multiple ways of being and reacting that mirror the potential for diversity in other systems of learning and knowing.

Robin Love is a Nogojiwanong / Peterborough based artist working in writing, performance, and video installation. Her work investigates the space between theory and practice, between not knowing and knowing, between the virtual and the real.

Attention is a task we share: Robin Love is the last in a series of three micro-exhibitions programmed for November and December 2020 at Artspace.
