Any distance between us
Any distance between us explores the power and significance of intimate relationships in works of contemporary art, particularly those made by artists identified as Queer and of color. The exhibition features more than 30 objects—including several new acquisitions from the RISD Museum’s permanent collection—by artists such as Louis Fratino, Aaron Gilbert, Doron Langberg, Deana Lawson, Catherine Opie, Jack Pierson, Elle Pérez, and Salman Toor. Manual, the RISD Museum’s biannual journal, also focuses its Fall/Winter 2021 issue on intimacy, with texts by the curators and images of the exhibition. Any distance between us is curated by artist-writer Stephen Truax (RISD BFA 2007, Painting) in collaboration with Dominic Molon, the Richard Brown Baker Curator of Contemporary Art at RISD Museum.
