Moonwalkers is a group exhibition that highlights tensions and revelations found in the body’s relationship to sense and the digital. The body as a site for experience is radically altered by the 21st century’s technology and resultant attitudes. We experience the presence of another’s absence felt globally during remote engagements made mandatory by the pandemic or the odd bliss of ASMR youtube channels. The body’s actions are quantified in a neoliberal context, for example by Fitbit biometric data collection to become a commodity. Even subject to surveillance by the misuse of Apple’s Geotrackers. The body and the digital are placed in uncomfortable adjacencies. Moonwalkers is an exhibition that presents six artists whose work approaches this peculiar and hypnotic phenomena.

The exhibition will travel or “slide” between Chicago, Kansas City and Berlin. Viewers may be familiar with the two selected artists from their city but will see four other artists, who are operating with a similar response, from two other cities. This adjacency is meant to underscore the intelligence and insight of all of the artists’ work in a larger context. As curators, we are interested in each artists’ representation of the sensual or haptic through their craft. Moonwalkers as an exhibition will move across conventional and unconventional mediums in order to highlight a digital touch back on the body.

Together, Jonah Criswell, Nicole Mauser, and Mirjam C. Wendt have selected six artists whose work is in dynamic, unique and possesses at times an unearthly beauty.
