In the relationship between aesthetics and politics\, there is always a risk of falling into the gap between the personal and the commu nal. Art\, and by extension aesthetics\, is often discussed as a highly per sonal\, radically individualized form of expression while politics is\, by necessity\, a force of society that seeks solutions to shared interests. Bu t perhaps this contradiction has been overstated\, as it is generally accep ted that any art\, regardless of its intentions\, necessarily takes a polit ical stance by either conforming to or protesting against established syste ms of power and value. So if the political is necessarily unavoidable\, wha t is the role of an aesthetic that consciously allies itself with the resis tance to hegemonic powers? What does it look like\, how does it operate\, a nd who is a part of it? The Hollow Center takes such questions as it s impetus\, featuring recent works by artists that seek both an historical account of and a future potential for a potent aesthetics of resistance.  DTEND:20121223 DTSTAMP:20141221T053636 DTSTART:20121117 GEO:40.7038547;-73.9895663 LOCATION:Smack Mellon\,92 Plymouth Street \nBrooklyn\, NY 11201 SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY:The Hollow Center \, MTL (Nitasha Dhillon & Amin Husain)\, Huong Ng o and Hong-An Truong in collaboration with the Acting the Words is Enactin g the World collective\, Corey Escoto\, Elana Mann\, Michala Paludan\, Sres hta Rit Premnath\, Christine Rebet\, Dread Scott\, and Mary Simpson\, Anida Yoeu Ali and Mary Jane Villamor UID:245387 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTEND:20121117T200000 DTSTAMP:20141221T053636 DTSTART:20121117T170000 GEO:40.7038547;-73.9895663 LOCATION:Smack Mellon\,92 Plymouth Street \nBrooklyn\, NY 11201 SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY:The Hollow Center \, MTL (Nitasha Dhillon & Amin Husain)\, Huong Ng o and Hong-An Truong in collaboration with the Acting the Words is Enactin g the World collective\, Corey Escoto\, Elana Mann\, Michala Paludan\, Sres hta Rit Premnath\, Christine Rebet\, Dread Scott\, and Mary Simpson\, Anida Yoeu Ali and Mary Jane Villamor UID:245388 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
