Attentive to the ways in which artists monitor, contemplate and intervene in societies as they change, 'Wild Frictions' brings together works that reflect some of the anxieties, disruptions, and tensions which arose or intensified during 2020. Using sculpture, text, video, sound, digital media, and performance, the artists in this exhibition apply strategies of interruption and obstruction to a critique of the grand narratives, oppressive systems and unconscious, sometimes violent, organizing rituals that characterize everyday life. The presented works, though made predominantly prior to the pandemic and social uprisings of the past year, resonate with feelings of disruption, alienation, and loss of control that have accompanied recent and ongoing shutdowns, quarantines and economic pauses.
This exhibition is supported by the ifa exhibition funding.
