Kiona Ligtvoet's These Are the Things is an installation of paintings with an assortment of nostalgic objects that explores the artist’s "non-linear means of storytelling, drawing from memory, writings and photographs." She describes the work as a “gentle attempt at navigating intergenerational barriers to grief, tenderness, and longing, in the presence of enfranchisement and personal displacement."

It opens in the Garage by appointment only to single-household groups. Until June 19.
