On Limits: Estrangement in the Everyday
This experimental exhibition presents more than twenty artworks in a surprisingly intimate and formally incoherent dialectical array, putting into dialogue proximate discourses on social reproduction, state violence, racism, queerness, and the environment. Whether explicit or implicit in relation to a recognizable contemporary politics, the selected painting, sculpture, print, sound works, films, videos, photographs, and performances point to the pernicious ideological exclusions that structure neoliberal capitalism, pushing certain problems and bodies beyond view and taking effect at the limits of social intelligibility. Curated by Daniella Rose King, Viktor Neumann, Samuele Piazza, and Kari Rittenbach, Helena Rubinstein Curatorial Fellows of the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program.
