The Criminal Type
Sep 07 - Oct 26 2019
Rogues' galleries—19th century photographic exhibitions showcasing the earliest incarnations of modern-day mug shots—offer a point of departure for this exhibition examining the entwined history of photographic portraiture and criminality. Selected works will interrogate the common tools and formats of artistic, bureaucratic, and juridical portraiture, and expose those aesthetic codes that homogenize otherness and enforce a pervasive principle of "guilty until proven innocent." Artists: Paolo Cirio, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Eric Etheridge, Stephen Maturen, Zora J. Murff, Josh Ritchie, Arne Svenson. Curated by Elizabeth Breiner. Opening Reception Fri, Sept 6, 6-8pm
Souls Grown Diaspora
Jan 11 - Mar 07 2020
Souls Grown Diaspora is an exhibition that explores a generation of leading contemporary visionary African-American artists from the wider United States, and situates their work into an art-historical lineage shaped by the Great Migration. The exhibition traces how the migration, the movement of six million African-Americans from the rural South, between 1916 and 1970, to urban centers such as New York, Chicago, and Detroit, produced a new wave of self-taught artists whose work addresses a range of revelatory social and political subjects. Curated by Sam Gordon. Opening Reception: Fri, Jan 10, 6-8pm
Meteorological Mobilities
May 28 - Aug 01 2020
Meteorological Mobilities urges a radical re-thinking on the way we act collectively upon climate change as planetary citizens. Far from promoting planetary catastrophism, exotic miseries, and passive resistance, the works on view aim to raise awareness of climate injustice and challenge the dominant political power of the countries and corporations which are primary contributors to climate change. Artists: Amy Balkin et al., Ursula Biemann, Juan delGado, Forensic Architecture. Curated by Marianna Tsionki. Opening Reception: Weds, May 27, 6-8pm.
