The Visible Turn: Contemporary Artists Confront Political Invisibility
The four international artists in The Visible Turn, Jorge Tacla, Karolina Sobecka, Bosco Sodi, and Tavares Strachan, will create installations in response to the phenomenon of cultural concealment. They will combine the presentation of objects and performances inside an exhibition venue with artist-directed activities that engage and support communities in the Tampa Bay area affected by political or social invisibility. Together, the works refer to people and ideas that have crucially been omitted from today’s social, political, economic, and cultural processes. According to Duchamp’s logic, invisibility is impotence. What is powerful is to be seen. Curated by Christian Viveros-Fauné; organized by USF Contemporary Art Museum.
