  • Sensible Disobedience Opening

    Friday, March 10, 2017: 6-9pm

    Sensible Disobedience considers the way images, words, symbols, and signs—forms of representation—inundate public and private spaces and shape personal experience in the age of neoliberal capitalism. More specifically, the exhibition investigates semiotics, the study of how meaning is created and communicated through signs and symbols, and the politics of representation in contemporary society. The works of Lyndon Barrois Jr., Brandon Forrest Frederick, Christopher K. Ho, Alex Savage, Oli Watt, and Jordan Weber examine the relational and social role of representation through subtle modes of interruption and disruption. Through interdisciplinary artistic practices, these artists consider what is represented in contemporary media, the ways images and objects infiltrate our daily experience, and how cultural assumptions inform the navigation of a world heavily mediated by the screen. Responding to inescapable amount of images to enter the collective consciousness, the artists in the exhibition present analytical and formal works that shift the viewer’s experience of an image, while finding the humor, futility, and urgency in the human condition.

    Friday, November 18, 2016: 6-9pm

    Taking its title from the late 1970s bilingual sitcom of the same name, ¿Qué Pasa, USA? is a group exhibition of eleven national artists that considers a broad spectrum of experiences reflecting and responding, specifically through humor, absurdity, and joy, to what it means to be a citizen in this country today. From video installation to site-specific fiber works, the exhibition weaves a range of narratives together to complicate our collective story.
