Raven Chacon, Gabi Dao, Lou Sheppard: Relations of Responsibility
Wednesday, October 9, 7-9pm
Relations of Responsibility is a group exhibition of work by contemporary artists that explores how the performativity of identity is echoed through the interpretive leniency of scores. In the capacity to respond to the call of a score, the agency of an actor is first acknowledged and then subsequently altered through the heeding of that call. The understanding of a score — how it signifies and what meaning is made from it — develops in reciprocity to these intersections. Borrowing its title from the propositions of Karen Barad, a theoretical physicist ad feminist scholar, Relations of Responsibility includes projects that extend the performance of a score beyond looking and interpreting, towards conditions of relationality.
