'Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
'That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.
'I don't much care where—' said Alice.
'Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.
'—so long as I get somewhere,' Alice added as an explanation.
'Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, 'if you only walk long enough.'

—from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, CHAPTER VI

Alice next arrives somewhere, just as the Cheshire cat predicted, but was she the same Alice when she got there? This exhibition seeks to explore travel, travelers, Travellers, and journeys, and ask how they change each other. Artists Leanne McDonagh, Ellie Berry, and Edy Fung bring to the exhibition a perception of travel that’s tied to their experiences, and each offers the audience a moment of meditation on how travel can influence them, their destination, and their idea of “somewhere.”

Mondays through Wednesdays | 5:30pm–9pm 
January 17–March 9; April 10–June 1 

Saturdays | 1pm–5pm
January 28–July 22 (except April 8 and May 27)
