Candace von Hoffman
Thursday 26th May - 30th May
Candace is our resident artist this month. Her exhibition Love Tourist will be her first international exhibition. She said, "...I was under the illusion that I could predict exactly who I would date, for how long, and when we would have kids. I have now been on 51 first dates (and counting) since my last breakup and have stopped pretending I have a single answer. What do I want? Why am I still going on dates? Is this dating life sustainable? I have no fucking clue."
