Event Description

ON VIEW: January 18-February 25, 2018
CURATED BY: Jenny Gerow

Reenactment is a group exhibition that will look at the aesthetic and political implications of historical reenactment in contemporary art. The title of the exhibition comes from the tradition of living history where historical events like the American Revolution and Civil War are reenacted by amateur performers using storytelling and props, always in an attempt to portray history as unchangeable as accurately as if it was fixed. Through work in performance, video, and photography, this exhibition looks at six artists of color unsettling cultural mythologies and origin stories by using performance to look at history as fluid putting the past and present in dialogue with one another. The histories represented range from the First Nations of North America to the refugee crisis in Syria exploring race, identity, and representation and asserting the lived experiences of people left out of history.

ARTISTS: Ken Gonzales-Day, Crystal Z. Campbell, Marisa Williamson, Maria Hupfield, Alicia Grullón, and Farideh Sakhaeifar.
