The Past Is Never Where You Left It

The Past Is Never Where You Left It

Exploring the past and questioning if it is fixed or something malleable, constantly reshaped by the backward-casting eye. Our guests, the Wei Ling Gallery owner and curator, point to our penchant for glamourizing the past, harkening back to “the  good old” days. They underscore that glorifying the past perhaps reveals more about how we feel about the present and the future.
