About the Exhibition: 

Space vs. Place is a series of photographs by Susan Kordalewski that play on transitions from three-dimensional to two-dimensional space. Her photographs speak of the gestalt of perception, which allows us to move through visual space in a photograph as we do through memories in our mind.
