Now, as you awaken, remember the swan's
last dance. Did you dance with young angels
while you were dreaming? Did the butterfly
light you up when it burned with the eternal
light of the rose?Did the phoenix appear clearly
before you and call you by your name?
Did you see the morning dawn from the fingers
of the one you love? Did you touch
the dream with your hand or did you
leave it to dream alone, aware suddenly
of your own absence? Dreamers don't abandon
their dreams, they flare and continue
the life they have in the dream…tell me
how you lived your dream in a certain place
and I'll tell you who you are. And now,
as you awaken, remember if you have wronged
your dream. And if you have, then remember
the last dance of the swan.

Mahmoud Darwish, poet (1941-2008)

The works in this exhibition invite viewers to consider all living beings’ capacity to experience sensations and emotions. Using ceramics, textiles, painting, sculpture and video, the artists’ work reflect on both our desire for connection and reciprocity, and our impulse to anthropomorphize creatures and objects. This inaugural exhibition brings together works by current CSUDH students and recent graduates with emerging and mid-career artists in Los Angeles.
