14th A.I.R. Biennial: An A-historical Daydream
A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to present its 14th Biennial exhibition, An A-historical Daydream, curated by Jasmine Wahi. The exhibition will be presented in two phases, the first online on A.I.R.’s website and the second at its gallery in Brooklyn, New York. Comprised of a selection of media-based works, the online portion of the show is on view from January 8 through March 14, 2021. The gallery exhibition will be open by appointment beginning on February 12, 2021.
An A-historical Daydream investigates the slipperiness of linear time across a variety of both parallel and intersecting histories. Histories are often singular narratives: they are agendized and unbalanced, and often promote a binary idea of ‘us vs them’ or ‘conqueror and conquered.’ This exhibition invites artists to consider time, history, and future in new and radical ways. It asks them to reflect upon the popular histories that we have been taught, and to then radically imagine a space/time dimension in which colonialism and hegemonic structures either never existed or existed in a different form.
