The term “carry forward” suggests passing or transferring something on to the next generation, yet also refers to taking account of gains and loss. As a curator and artist, I have approached Carry Forward as a way to think about value outside of the paradigm of things, and to consider how different forms of value, beyond capital or monetary, circulate among past and future generations. Some values can be traced through records and paperwork, yet others are elusive, sustained in fragments, memories, stories, knowledge, and place. Lived experience, carries forward.
