The Dissemination of Blind Light looks to the concepts of retreating and revealability. Light, as subject and a point of departure, sets the tone for each artist’s work and their sense of agency towards navigating the public and private.
In their works – that range from painting to a pop-up parlor show – these ideas and forms take shape through the exposure of their artistic processes, the instigation of boundaries, by the retelling and reimagining of histories, and by engaging social innuendos and cultural signifiers. New and recent works by HATCH artists-in-residence Stevie Hanley, Kelly Lloyd, Esau McGhee, Andrew Rosinski, Hui-min Tsen and Julie Weber enter in a conversation with one another, representing a breadth of entry points on the ever-present interrogation of the ambiguity of public and private space.
The Dissemination of Blind Light is curated by La Keisha Leek.
