Stephanie Syjuco: Rogue States   
For this exhibition of new and recent works by Stephanie Syjuco, she employs installation, photography, sculpture, and textile to explore the complexities of such politically charged concepts as citizenship, immigration, and nationality. She links history to present-day narratives, connecting image-making to the impacts of colonialism.

Bethany Collins: Chorus
Language is both subject and primary material for Bethany Collins. She fractures and erases text from dictionaries, patriotic songs, bureaucratic reports, and classified ads, rendering select phrases illegible. Through these actions Collins seeks to remaster the language that others have made.

Jonathas de Andrade: Voyeristico
For Voyeristico, Jonathas de Andrade approached strangers on the streets of his hometown Recife, in northeast Brazil, and São Paulo, to film them slowly opening their wallets, offering an unusual visual entry into people's private lives. Shown on CAM's exterior facade as part of Street Views, this is the artist's first outdoor video projection.

Margaret Keller: Botanica absentia
Presented by Teen Museum Studies
Botanica absentia emerges out of Margaret Keller’s belief that at this precise moment, we are at the tipping point of a world gone wrong. The installation serves as a fictive memorial and archive dedicated to lost trees.

Museum hours: Wed–Sun 10:00 am–5:00 pm; Open until 8:00 pm Thu & Fri
