Play, Precarity and Survival @ aceartinc

 Jul 30 – Aug 22

Opening reception July 30, 2015 7pm
aceartinc, 290 McDermot Avenue
Exhibition continues July 31-August 22, 2015
Curated by Sigrid Dahle, featuring work by Marcel Dzama, Seema Goel, Rachael Kroeker, Jeannie Mah, Monica Mercedes Martinez, and Brendan Tang.
This group exhibition includes artists who consciously use ceramic
history, material properties and studio and/or commercial production
processes to playfully and incisively explore, resist and/or perform
unmoored contemporary identities. How are ever-evolving,
cross-generational im/migrant experiences, colonial narratives and
hybridized identities – what we customarily call ‘globalization’ –
enacted in and through the vibrant discourse that is 21st century
ceramics? What is it about this medium that renders it so amenable to
supporting these timely and compelling investigations? Explore these
questions and more when Play, Precarity and Survival opens this July.
