Eclipsing: the politics of night, the politics of light

Arts Incubator Gallery
301 E. Garfield Blvd
Chicago, IL 60637

January 26 - March 16, 2018
Opening, Friday, January 26, 2018, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
 

Carris Adams, Bethany Collins, Cream Co., Terrell Davis, Angela Davis Fegan, Sabrina Granados, Deana Lawson, Kelly Lloyd, Shala Miller and Liz Mputu

On view at the Arts Incubator Gallery, the exhibition is a program of the ECLIPSING FESTIVAL that converges around the first lunar eclipse of January, 2018. Challenging assumptions of darkness, Eclipsing: the politics of night, the politics of light is a group exhibition that implicates the eclipse as a metaphor in order to explore conversations of power, landscape, language, space and visibility. The exhibition is a series of propositions organized and exhibited together in order to threaten, suspend, reshape and revision expectations and associations between light and dark.
From the newspaper front page (Bethany Collins, “The Birmingham News, 1963”) to the sidebar digital ad (Terrell Davis, “Untitled”) and from the hole in the couch (Deana Lawson, “Portal”) to a puddle in the ground (Shala Miller, “The Song the Seed Sings”), the works featured in this exhibition argue for, demand, suggest and encourage an interpretation of the world at large, beyond the binary of light and dark.
