A multimedia exhibition featuring Cat Bluemke, Jennifer Chan, Maya Ben David, Shawné Michaelain Holloway, Analú Lopez, and Iryne Roh.
While the body has been bending for millenia, bending at the knee has a special significance of deference and submission. Genuflexion mandates that you kneel to the art, cushions provided. Works in the exhibition open up the relationship between the human body and the material planet. Drawing from vast digital and physical landscapes, the artists repurpose religious iconography, apocalyptic narratives and unctuous slime space to question what is feminine, what is visible, and what is our future?
Genuflexion is presented by Creamy Gallery –
Genuflexion is part of 2nd Floor Rear, more info at:
