    CSA Space presents Awake in Mt. Pleasant, an exhibition by Associate Professor Arni Haraldsson.

    Since the eighties Arni Haraldsson has amassed a vast collection of found imagery from various religious publications such as Awake! and Plain Truth that were made available to him while strolling in his neighbourhood of Mount Pleasant. Haraldsson clipped the photographic images from these publications and assorted them into various categories ... Awake in Mt. Pleasant can be seen as an unorthodox portrait of the artist's neighbourhood. Guest curated by Alex Pensato.
