tell me where to go features work from Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery’s permanent collection that interrogate and interrupt implicit cultural codes that inform and dictate the way gendered, diasporic and queer bodies move through the world. Drawing on choreographic and feminist curatorial approaches, the works in tell me where to go disrupt personal navigational systems and call into question the possibility of safe spaces and uncensored movement.
