Upcoming Exhibitions
NYC
Tracing Obsolescence
organized by Evelyn Owen
September 8 - October 27, 2018

Tracing Obsolescence explores the material and psychic residues of global large-scale manufacturing and extraction that haunt the post-industrial subconscious. Through prints, video, and installation, it draws out obscured links between industry and contemporary environmental, socio-economic, and geopolitical crises.
New Delhi, India
Regimes of Truth
organized by Shaunak Mahbubani
October 7 - November 3, 2018

As India’s right-wing fundamentalist party enters the final year of its term under the current Prime Minister, the time is ripe to reflect on the changes brought about by its leadership. Following public mob-lynchings and drastic environmental crimes, this exhibition questions the government’s present use of propaganda to claim and consolidate political control.
NYC
Peer2Pickle
organized by Justin Tyler Tate
January 12 - March 9, 2019

Peer2Pickle takes on the global problem of food waste and consequent greenhouse gas increases by designing a workshop and factory for transforming fresh local produce into extended shelf-life goods. In light of the absence of governmental and corporate incentives to address the issue, the project follows an open-source model as it generates its own web-based archive of recipes and strategies.
Lagos, Nigeria
Re-imaging Futures: A Trans-Nigerian Conversation
organized by
Innocent Ekejiuba and Yinka Elujoba
February 10 - March 9, 2019

Evolving from a road trip across Nigeria undertaken by a group of writers, photographers, and filmmakers in 2016 and 2017, this exhibition presents works that examine what it means to be Nigerian today. It will feature documentation of the road trip and timely works that respond to Nigeria’s political instability, ethnic crises, and colonized past.
San Francisco, United States
System Failure
organized by
Harris Kornstein and Cara Rose DeFabio
April 28 - May 25, 2019

“Fail fast! Fail big! Fail often! Fail better!” These oft-quoted Silicon Valley mantras celebrate the high-octane risk-taking that is a hallmark of the tech world. But who gets to fail? This exhibition critiques ideologies of technological failure and tactically engages breakdown itself. Artists strategically build tools that are never meant to function properly, and push systems further than they were meant to go.
NYC
Art in Custody
organized by Alexandra Stock
May 30 - July 27, 2019

Art in Custody presents artworks defaced or destroyed and documentation of objects altogether lost at the hands of customs officers in the Middle East. The exhibition creates a safe space for objects damaged either through deliberate force or passive negligence as they are moved across borders, examining the consequences of overzealous control due to misunderstanding or abuse in a regional climate of political paranoia.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Resisting Paradise
organized by Marina Reyes Franco
June 9 - July 6, 2019

Drawing inspiration from Caribbean nations’ shared history--from invasion, to plantation, to resort economic development model--this project addresses tourism as a new means of colonization. Through transgression and appropriation, participating artists envision new paradigms of life in the region and its diaspora, by challenging preconceived notions of what it means to be Caribbean.
