DESCRIPTION

The Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University is pleased to present Demolition Woman, an exhibition curated by Commonwealth & Council, September 23 to October 25, 2013. The exhibition assembles an intergenerational sisterhood of artists whose projects re-envision our shared habitat through inflections of difference.

Utilizing a symbolic stratagem that undergoes both physical and contextual transformations, Demolition Womandismantles shoddy infrastructures of knowledge and social order by regenerating an open system for grafted realities and truths. Adopting various epistemologies of material process, Kaucyila Brooke, Kelly Cline, Veronique d’Entremont, Danielle Dean, Lecia Dole-Recio, Patricia Fernández, Margaret Honda, Alice Könitz, Bessie Kunath, Young Joon Kwak, Gina Osterloh, Gala Porras-Kim, Jen Smith, Ariane Vielmetter, and Brenna Youngblood synthesize permutations of language, history, and memory toward divergent forms and meanings.

An artist reception will be held on Sunday, October 20, 1PM—4PM, coinciding with the release of the exhibition catalogue designed by New Byzantium and featuring an Eknæs font/cover design by Nicolau Vergueiro and essays by Doris Chon, Chương-Đài Võ, and Catherine Wagley. Printed in an edition of 196, each copy of the catalogue contains a unique print that functions as a 1:1 scale segment of the walls, floor, or ceiling of the bathroom from Margaret Honda’s4366 Ohio Street, an ongoing, full-scale reconstruction in paper of the artist’s childhood home.
