Week 8: “Rosie, why don’t you ever smile?” – QSS collaboration with artist and curator Moran Been-noon

“This week is all about how we look at each other and the expectations we keep within that gaze. Some of the pieces I selected hold a sense of awkwardness towards the viewer, others challenge our attempt to assign a narrow truth to their expression or meaning.” Moran Been-noon
