Feel Me?

September 14 – October 13, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 14, 6 – 9 PM
Curated by Sampada Aranke

 

There’s a tiny space between feeling and knowing. Worlds of engagement are possible within that space. In the realm of the social, senses can take over, words feel cliché, histories run up against the present-tense. Feel Me? offers up a few feminist approaches to the sensorial contours of the social. These material manifestations — skin sores, saliva, blood and sweat — and take poetic shape in found and made objects that quietly ask us to reconsider the things we feel and the things we leave behind for others to feel.

Participating artists: Sadie Barnette (Oakland/Los Angeles), Xandra Ibarra (Oakland), Dylan Mira (Los Angeles), Kristan Kennedy (Portland), Tina Takemoto (San Francisco).

Sampada Aranke (PhD, Performance Studies) is an Assistant Professor in the Art History, Theory, Criticism Department at the School of the Art Institute, Chicago. Her research interests include performance theories of embodiment, visual culture, and black cultural and aesthetic theory.
