Collaborations

The phrase “cartography of places” best captures the essence of what makes this show so special. As the viewer moves from piece to piece, they become aware that a story is being mapped out. The sea, as a physical entity and as a romantic notion, is the connective thread that weaves throughout the storyline.

Shape of Us

 

Curated by Mayuka Kato Doja

A collaboration with Karolina Pernar

and Alison Woods

Luxembourg 2020

 

In the present situation of the global spread of Coronavirus, what turned out to be particularly vulnerable is the condition of sociality and the moments of being together. The title of the exhibition points out the pronoun “us” can thus be understood as a reflection about the delicate constitution of the public space, in which the relationship with others is no longer innocent (if it has ever been!), but is, at the moment, profoundly contested due to the possibility that the other can be the carrier of the virus. Departing from this ambiguous “us” – as a conceptual framework that connects the works despite their differences – I am prone to think about the exhibition as embodying fragile geography of a jeopardized togetherness.

Futopia

Curated by Alison Woods

and Kio Griffith

Los Angeles, CA 2017

How do we know when a new world paradigm is in the works. What marks the transition, and how do we know when it is time to fight or to take flight? 

 

With the election of Donald Trump, Brexit, mass immigration of Syrian refugees, and impending climate change the world seems to be on the brink of sudden and transformative change. The rising global power of the 1% at the expense of the 99% leaves the world’s populations feeling helpless to redirect the course of a world perceived as spinning out of control. 


What is possible within this context? We have posed this question to the artists participating in this exhibition. The offspring is Futopia, a crude hybridization of possible futures, both utopic and dystopic.

Exhibiting Artists: Gul Cagin, Helen Chung, Eben Goff, Pete Hickok, Bryan Ida, Ma Li , Alanna Marcelletti, Alex Schaefer, and Lena Kazakova Wolek
