Fragile States

NEW WORKS BY KATE CONLON, BRYAN VOLTA, AND JENYU WANG

January 8 – 31, 2016
ACRE Projects | 1345 W 19th Street, Chicago, IL
Curated by Kathy Cho, Lynnette Miranda, and Etta Sandry

The artists in Fragile States, Kate Conlon, Bryan Volta, and Jenyu Wang, challenge established structures in an attempt to understand the uncertain, the uncanny, and the unknown. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, these three artists create physical manifestations of invisible phenomena, evoking familiarity, absurdity, obsession, and futility. Through their work, each artist constructs pieces of an imagined reality as if in a parallel universe, positing alternative narratives through these new representations and creating a generative space for repressed instincts and intuitions. 

The exhibition was presented at ACRE Projects in Chicago, IL from January 8–31, 2016. Futile Divide was curated by Kathy Cho, Lynnette Miranda and Etta Sandry. Find out more about this exhibition at fragilestates.make-space.net and acreresidency.org.
