Jessica Cochran, curator of Human Human, will host a discussion of the exhibition in RAA 117. This event if FREE and all are welcome to attend!
Against the backdrop of a discordant presidency, Human Human considers the array of ways that recent artworks register as political, and responsive. The impetus for the exhibition grew out of months of conversations with artists about urgency and agency, particularly in relation one’s work in the studio and one’s life as a citizen.
By bringing together works across a spectrum of making, Human Human creates a space to consider art and affect in relation to the twin impulses of escapism and action. What is the role of art in relation to world-making, from the studio to the street?
