How a Living Day is Made is an exhibition about survival strategies that features the work of Aisha Sasha John, Rachelle Sawatsky and Walter Scott. Their practices open up places of affect, empathy and entanglement, staking a claim for the vibrancy of being recovered from the banal, systemic or heroic struggles of making a life in the world today.
