We All Return To The Place That It Started is a group exhibition of works that explore themes of memory, identity, personal narratives, and cultural histories. Curated by Silvia Beatriz Abisaab, it features a selection of works that include drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, installation, and a range of visual languages and approaches that offer a diverse and thought-provoking connection to representation and experience. The exhibition aims to demonstrate the wide breadth of formal and thematic explorations of the current major and minor students in the Studio Art program in the Department of Art and Art Professions, at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.
