/’rek(ǝ)niNG/ — Artists’ Reception Monday, March 18, 7:30–9:30pm

Mar 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

/’rek(ǝ)niNG/

This exhibit takes up the question: what does it mean to reckon with the past and the ways it manifests in the present? How can such manifestation act as a practice of reckoning that provides new insights into how we imagine and engage to the past? What do the politics of reckoning entail? What forms of accountability are deemed necessary of artists, of citizens? And what new social and creative worlds might be made visible and viable after such a reckoning?This exhibit features the work of a number of artists across disciplines whose work function as modes of reckoning. Living in an age of consequence, what accounts need to be settled in order to activate transformation(s)?From the deepening crisis of climate change, to ecological collapse, to warfare within school walls, to contemporary debates over nations’ borders, democracy, race, gender, sex, and class inequality we encounter a moment of profound precarity, uncertainty, and unknowing. For artists, these crises pose a unique challenge, namely, what does it mean to make art in this moment?
