Art + Culture
Various Artists: Shifters
Art in General presents Shifters, an exhibition of commissions, projects and performances that brings together a group of emerging contemporary artists whose practices are engaged with language.
The collective works on view investigate how various systems of communication and their attendant histories and ideologies are being reconsidered through the lens of gender today. The project speaks to theories arguing that language as a social agreement is not passive or fixed, but rather, it possesses the potential to reimagine structures of power. Shifters will inquire how conventions that organize how we read, listen, and relate to one another, have the capacity to be rethought and destabilized.
Artists include Becca Albee, Colleen Asper, Beatriz Balanta, Cara Benedetto, Mary Walling Blackburn, Danielle Dean, Sophia Le Fraga, Jonah Groeneboer, Gordon Hall, Marika Kandelaki The exhibit is curated by Kristen Chappa.
